My Professional Photographic career began at Laing Construction (now Laing O’Rourke) as a staff photographer based in Mill Hill, London in 1987. This role was primarily Architectural Photography but also involved some Public Relations and Event imagery. Post redundancy, I then freelanced as an Architectural Photographer and although I thoroughly enjoyed the work, it unfortunately proved to be an unsustainable career choice due to the sporadic nature and frequency of commissions. In February 1992 I started my career with the Metropolitan Police Service as a Forensic Photographer. I worked for the Met for 24 years and was privileged to provide evidence for a very large number of murder investigations as well as Disaster Victim Identification after the Paddington rail crash, Thailand Tsunami and the London bombings of July 2005. In addition to my crime scene work I was also deployed as a Photographer with both Forward Intelligence and Evidence Gathering teams at numerous Public Order events. I was one of the first Met. Photographers to train in the retrieval of images at Nuclear, Biological and Chemical scenes. My last 10 years of service were as Head of Photographic Training at New Scotland Yard’s Crime Academy.
I have now relocated to the Hook Peninsula in Co.Wexford, Ireland to concentrate on my personal work.
