I am a photographer based in Fordingbridge, on the edge of the New Forest, Hampshire, UK. I create prints using fade-resistant, pigment-based archival inks and quality papers. Call in at Alderbridge Artisans, 55 High Street, Fordingbridge where a selection of prints are on display and available to buy. There are also a selection available to buy direct. See the Galleries page for previews.

I have built up a library of over 5000 images with a top news/stock photo agency with several having been used by national newspapers. You can browse the full set at My Stock Library (use the search box to narrow the results). You can, of course, license them for use via Alamy.

I can be hired at very reasonable rates to capture images that meet your requirement, whether that be a portrait (over 16s and no pets please), a wedding or any other special occasion. A sample collection of wedding photos is available on request. I work with Nikon DSLR cameras and a range of Nikon professional prime and zoom lenses.

Quite a few of my printed images were taken on the footpath through Burgate Manor Farm. The farm has a number of self catering holiday cottages available to rent and is right on the doorstep of The New Forest. You can be inside the national park in just a few steps, including a crossing of the River Avon on a suspension bridge. For more details, visit Burgate Manor Farm.
