Chevrolet Campaign in Mexico.

At the beginning of the summer, McCann Mexico and Oriental Films commissioned me to shoot their latest billboard and print campaign ‘Find New Roads’. The location was a dry lake bed, a seven hour drive north-west of Mexico City, where the wind blew and the sun was harsh. Much of the planning took place over the phone and via virtual meetings before I arrived in the country, and then there was a good deal of time to reconnoitre the area and to make sure we all knew what was happening on the day. One of the many challenges was shooting from a ten metre platform, in gusting winds and in low light (the basis the image was shot just before dusk), and keeping the vehicles clean was also a challenge, given the location, wind and the colour of the SUV’s. The billboards are currently going up all over Mexico City.


Photography is more than a job for me, and my passion for the craft is as vibrant now as it was when I started this journey 25 years ago. Whether it is a single image or a series, my aim is to tell a story.

I am known, and commissioned, for my ability to shoot portraits, landscapes, travel and automotive. I have photographed business leaders, environmentalists, rock stars, actors, authors, sportsmen and women, Hells Angels and politicians all around the world.

Before a shoot, I do as much research as I can and seek to make the experience collaborative. I always prepare and go with a plan, but I also remain ready to respond to whatever happens on the day. Key to my approach is connecting with the subject, art department or client on the day.

I have travelled to nearly 70 countries for clients ranging from Jaguar, Volvo, Polestar, Land Rover, De Beers, Ocado and British Airways. My work has been published in Campaign, Shortlist, The Guardian, BA High Life, New York Times, Management Today, The Telegraph, One Life and the London Olympics Official Programme, to name a few. I also have had two photographic books published. Hells Angels Motorcycle Club and Rockin’ (The Rockabilly Scene). I have had my work exhibited in galleries in the UK, North America and Europe.


I work for a variety of clients in a variety of sectors, meeting the challenges that are thrown my way.
