My best pictures tell an unfinished story, with a sense of place or personality – questions of who, what, where, when. A moment in people’s lives that makes the viewer think.

My photography tries to find this story. Or more correctly, it’s about conveying a portion of the story, a moment in people’s lives that makes us ask questions about who they are, what they’re doing, what they’re thinking, and how they ended up in the photo. The photographer’s craft includes both narration (the story) and curation (the moment the image is taken).

Currently taking an MA Photography, at Falmouth University.

My day job is a Board level consultant on the ethical and leadership implications of Big Data technology. Visiting Professor at the University of Leeds.
