As a student, I spent many of my weekends scouring Snowdonia and the Yorkshire dales in search of gorges and ravines. My obsession at the time was with highlining, a sport not dissimilar to walking a tightrope, but with the extra reward of being able to pursue it in the great outdoors. It was through capturing these adventures that I first began to start taking photography seriously.
My first camera was a birthday present which I dropped from the top of the Lagginhorn whilst trying to take a selfie; I now avoid taking them unless absolutely necessary. Shortly after, I used the last of my student loan to upgrade to a DSLR and after much practice I eventually began to be offered the odd bit of photography work from friends and from friends of friends.
I moved to Chamonix a year after I graduated and have been living and taking photos here ever since. For a while I was working full time here as a photographer and videographer for Epic TV.
For the last year and a half however, my photography has taken a new turn and I have been shooting chalets and apartments for estate agents and property management companies. Learning how to make these images was like relearning how to take photos all over again. But now that I have, I enjoy adding my own personality into the compositions.
You can find my chalet photography under the “Chalets” page found in the top menu bar.
