Freelance Photographer | Hartford, CT



Hi and thanks for coming to my site. I'm a freelance photographer based in Hartford, Connecticut, USA.

What about me then? Since I picked up a DSLR for the first time, I fell in love with it. The sharpness of the image, the colours and the ability to show people what you see when you wander around or perhaps get invited to events.

I get to travel a fair amount so some of the shots on the site are from that but I've also been asked to photograph christenings, parties, hospitality events, and even a few family snaps for different groups. Every assignment presents different challenges but more importantly different opportunities. 

The shots you see are just a small selection (there's lots more available if you want to see them!). If you like what you see, get in touch. Let me know what you think or if you want to meet and discuss opportunities for us to work together I would be delighted to hear from you too.

All images are available in a variety of print and electronic formats. I use a high quality print company for all my printed works and they can be offered in all sizes - from small framed prints to large 2m canvasses. I've recently printed on acrylic, metal and glass too which really make the colours pop!

Explore my site and see what I see - I'm sure you'll enjoy each image I've selected and come back regularly - I'll be changing them each month!


Past Work




Two very good friends of mine asked me to do an engagement shoot for them, taking in the sights and sounds of Hartford, CT. Given I live in the city, picking the right scenes to give them the shoot they want was 'easy' - although having the pressure of it being two friends made it a little harder!

Check out the case study for shots from our afternoon together.


Leanna is a multi-disciplined fitness leader - coaching clients at CycleBar in West Hartford, CT and a yoga teacher at Vasu and Hartford Sweat

I was so happy when Leanna asked me to help her refresh her photography for yoga. Check out her feed to see some of the additional work we've done. 


I've been a member of CycleBar for many months and when I was speaking to the staff there, I found that they were looking for new imagery after new instructors had joined. I was pleased to be able to help.

Check out their case study to see how the shoot went.

I've worked with Del a number of times over the past year and it's always been a pleasure. Del's brief was to help him improve his visual identity. 

In our sessions, we've focussed on headshots and action shots. 

Check out the case study to see how we got on.


Rocket Leisure is the group behind the successful triumvirate - Northcote, Venn Street and Old Street Records.

Last year Northcote Records celebrated it's 3rd birthday and it was a pleasure to go down and document the evening for them.

Happy clientele, awesome music and fantastic staff allowed me to showcase my low light and indoor work. Check out case study to see what happened.


Reach Fitness is quite frankly a phenomenon. Rich Tidmarsh and his band of merry men (aka Personal Trainers) have coached the likes of David Haye, Clean Eating Alice and James Haskell amongst others.

Last summer, Rich put on an event for his clients - a hard training session in the morning and a party in the sun after. I was there to capture the day's festivities. Check out the case study to see how it went down.


I have always had a connection to Ironsides Rugby. They are the club I first played for when I moved to London.

Since I stopped playing, I've been helping document their progression up the league ladder and to national glory.

Whilst I've covered a number of games for their men's and women's teams, a highlight for me was shooting pitch side at Twickenham. Check out the team case study for more shots.
