I've always been fascinated by the bond between man and machine. My earliest memories are either from the pits at Silverstone watching the British GT Championship in the early days of McLaren, or swatting my dads hands away from my ears when fast jets were allowed to perform over the crowd lines at airshows. Before I even went to school, I knew I wanted a career in the Royal Air Force. In the mean-time, I picked up photography as a hobby, then as a job. That was nearly 20 years ago. Eventually I managed to combine photography with flying and I was soon announced as 'RAF Photographer of the Year' in 2013 following my return home from the Gulf - something I'm still proud of today.
Since then I've done things that I struggle to tell people about with a straight face. Things that most people wouldn't think you could even do as a photographer and things that no amount of money in the world can pay for.
When I don't have a camera in my hand, I can generally either be found behind the wheel of my classic Camaro or with my girls on the beach. Usually still both things I do with a camera at the ready!
