Scope of Use
If the photos are from an event where you were a participant (or a family member/friend of the participant), or you are from the organising club, or non-commercial governing body for that sport - feel free to download them, save them, make prints, use them on your club or personal website, post them to your personal facebook page, use them to promote your sport or event etc. There is no charge for this, but if you enjoy my photos please consider
supporting me.

If you are from a commercial organisation (newspaper, magazine, website etc - i.e. for any use where you are making a profit - for example by charging for your product or through paid advertising on your website) you will need to obtain specific permission from me to use a photo or set of photos. Depending upon your organisation and the scope, there may be a cost associated. (Specific photos provided with press releases are considered free of charge/free to use.)

No photo offered here may be used to negatively promote any event, person, sport, activity or organisation.

Supporting Me
Thank you for considering supporting me! If you enjoy my photos, you can
send me something via Paypal.

Although photography is not my full-time profession, there are costs involved in bringing my photos to you (professional quality camera equipment, computers on which to process, edit and store the photos, website hosting and cloud photo storage - travel and fuel - as well as the time involved in taking, processing and uploading the end result). As such any support with these costs is much appreciated - Thank you!

About Me
I began photography as a child taking snaps on film, firstly on 126 and later 35mm - inheriting my first film SLR just as digital photography began to emerge. Careful research led me to a compact digital - the excellent Canon A70 with various add on lenses enabling me to hone my skills.

Upgrading to a proper digital SLR was the next step; a secondhand Canon 400D. Soon frustrated by the 400D's poor low light capability (and rapidly reaching its limits) I invested in professional equipment in 2019. I've stuck with Canon - I'm familiar with the brand; it gets me the results I want.

I'm interested in all sorts of photography. As the galleries show I am involved with hobbies (my own or friends and family) as well as photography for the sake of interest or art. I want my photos to show reality - to capture the moment in the way that it happened - that is without excessive photoshop, selfie-style filters or unrealistic over-saturated colours.

I particularly enjoy capturing fleeting human interactions - a group of friends sharing something together - you'll see many such images scattered through the galleries.

How long does it take for photos to be available?

Normally they are available within a week or two of the event.

...but sometimes life gets in the way, and it can take longer than this. Processing and editing photos is time consuming (often taking many times longer than the duration of the event itself). Photos from paid commercial work always take precedence over other events. My health can impact how long it takes. Occasionally when there have been multiple events within a short timeframe, a backlog can occur and it will take a little longer for your photos to appear. Thank you for your patience!

Are the galleries the best quality available?

Whist I always try to upload the highest quality version of all images (best resolution, least compressed) sometimes there are better versions available. This is particularly true of galleries older than a few months stored on Google Photos - or anything shared on social media (Facebook in particular significantly reduces photo resolution).

If there is a particular photo you need to be sure you have at the best quality, please get in contact.

Can I download and use your photos?

Generally yes - but please see Scope of Use.

Can I get you to attend my event?

I can offer Photographic Services depending upon the event and requirement. Please see the galleries for examples of my work - and to understand if my style suits what you are looking for.

If you wish to engage my services and to check my availability please get in contact. I am based in Burton-on-Trent.

What do you charge?

This depends entirely upon the event. Commercial paid work will have an agreed cost (time and expenses need to be covered, including processing time and support after the event). Invoices can be provided.

Sporting events (and any others that I am already attending) are essentially "free" - but photography still has costs (time, equipment, computers, photo hosting, website etc). If you enjoy and appreciate my photos please consider supporting me.

Photos at Parkrun events will always be completely free.

Do the gallery links ever expire?

Whilst I endeavour to keep any galleries up permanently once uploaded and shared, photo hosting services evolve with time and cloud storage space fills up. As such the quality of older galleries may be reduced, or if absolutely essential very old galleries may be taken offline completely. I will always try to keep an offline backup from the event in case of any issues with the online version - but to be certain, please keep your own copy of any photos that are important to you (within the Scope of Use).
