Although I have now lived in land-locked Cambridgeshire for over 20 years I grew up on the coast in the North East of England. I first picked up an analogue 35mm SLR when I was 10 years old. Whilst I still own several film cameras I only shoot professionally in the digital format. However, I still regularly draw upon the skills learnt when first starting out with 35mm film and remain true to many of the principles of analogue photography. I predominately shoot on a Canon EOS-1DX and have built up a wide selection of Canon L-marque ‘red-line’ Pro lenses which support my diverse photographic range. However I am just as comfortable using a basic ‘point & shoot’; for me, the mark of a competent photographer. Over the years I have developed a comprehensive set of formal and reportage photography skills which allows me to effectively and efficiently deal with any photographic scenario.

I haven’t always been a full-time photographer. Prior to setting up bokeh photographic, quite some time ago now, I held a Research Fellowship at the University of Cambridge and then managed a Research & Clinical Trials Unit. My own research interests were the Epidemiology of chronic ‘lifestyle’ diseases, Randomised Controlled Trials/Systematic Review/Meta-Analysis of medical technologies and Health Behavioural Science - the development and evaluation of interventions to change health-related behaviours. Detailed knowledge of behavioural modification is particularly useful as a Commercial Photographer in that visual prompts & cues can be subtly factored into product images to encourage (aka ‘nudge’) consumers to make a purchase.

On a personal note it’s no coincidence that some of my favourite places (Isles of Scilly, Northumberland, Lake District, Wales and the North Norfolk Coast) offer not just superb photographic opportunities but the opportunity to get out enjoy nature. I regularly undertake conservation work for the Wildlife Trust; particularly scientific monitoring for a hazel dormouse reintroduction project and I am currently working towards obtaining a Natural England licence for this protected species. It is probably just as well that I enjoy an active lifestyle (including hill walking, running, cycling and canoeing) as it means I keep trim despite sampling great produce when shooting Food & Drink Photography. It also allows me to dash around with lots of heavy camera kit without getting too puffed when on an Active Portraiture session or when loading heavy kit for a location shoot.

Finally, if you have ever wondered where the name ‘bokeh’ comes from there’s a hint at the bottom of each page!
