    Bronze in People/Portrait

Portrait of Judith Kerr, writer and illustrator, acclaimed for her children’s books such as The Tiger Who Came to Tea, Mog, and When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit. It was the last shot from the shoot and she gave me a friendly tiger's roar.

Born in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England, I studied a Foundation in Art at Leeds College of Art and went on to do a degree in Visual Communication in Bath. After graduating I moved to London to work as a photographer. I’ve been fortunate enough to have worked with and photograph some of the most exciting and talented people in Britain today. Photography is an extraordinary medium which allows us to express our imagination and creativity. For me it is beautiful and a part of my every day.
