About me

I am a British photographer, designer and web programmer living in Switzerland. My day job is as Technical Manager at !frappant Webfactory in Bern, where I wrangle front end and backend code for content management systems like TYPO3 and WordPress.

This is my personal website and blog, on which I share my photos and write on topics like web design, photography, lighting/portraiture technique and travel.

I share a lot of photos here on my blog, but the most extensive collection of images I have online is at Flickr. I’ve been sharing photos there for over ten years now and have amassed nearly 7000 images spread across a wide range of albums.

You can also find my photography at Getty Images, National Geographic, Picfair and 500px.
