About Me

In 2014, while still at school, I landed my dream job working for Gavin James, the official photographer at Cheltenham Racecourse. I worked for Gavin at eight different racecourses until his decision to retire in October 2016, at which stage I took over as official photographer at Royal Windsor and Newbury Racecourses, while forming part of the team of photographers at Cheltenham Racecourse. I became official photographer at Huntingdon in 2018.

My passion for horse racing comes before my passion for photography. Originally the love was for National Hunt racing, but these days the love for both codes is equal! My family have always said I only ever smile when I'm around horses, so to be able to do what I love for a living is very special.

I hope you enjoy browsing the photos on the site, please feel free to get in touch with any queries regarding my services or products.
