Brief Summary
News / Corporate/ Product/ PR Photography
After 18 years on Fleet St in London (including The Sun, News of the World and The People) and many more working for the Australian Press, I have finally moved to HONG KONG.
News is my speciality but there is little I have not covered so I can bring great experience to you job. You will get a professional result!
For those not in the know Hong Kong is the Asian Hub. Shuttle flights run regularly allowing the chance to get to a story sooner rather than later to secure your particular British / Australian/ American angle. So if its not happening here I can get there.
