'No-one in our house works'
Welcome to my site. I’m based in London and work as a photographer and picture editor for the BBC News website.
I’ve worked at the BBC for many years in a number of photographic roles, from the archive to the news desk via the darkroom. The majority of my work has been for BBC News working closely with journalists on news stories and features.
