For these we focused on hands, logos and making staff identities less obvious. I can't wait to see these images on the Rotocraft website! ...

Yes you are photogenic

When people find out I’m a photographer the first thing they tell me is ‘I’m not photogenic’. With all due respect, I disagree.

When I’m photographing my clients I’m constantly working to seek out the most flattering and beautiful way to capture them. This is through the ...

Dynamo Six

The Dynamo6 Team got in touch needing some casual and relaxed headshot images for press release, along with some team photos for their website.
