About Me

<-- I know, but my partner really likes this photo. I'm sure it reminds her of someone!!!

I’m a British ex pat  freelance photojournalist and language coach based in Madrid.

As a photojournalist I mostly cover public events, such as demonstrations, cultural events, for example the Madrid Book Fair, and also stories of interest such as dance shows. But because of my day-job a lot depends on time, although I'm quite flexible.

A major event I also cover is the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week - Madrid. I shoot both front stage and backstage. Backstage photography, is, of course, more challenging.

Most of my editorial photography is available at Demotix.com where I submit as Lawmoment. Images that are on Demotix can be licensed directly from Demotix.

I have been doing photography since I could hold a camera in my hand, but that was a really long time ago.

More recently I have been doing photography as a hobby since I came to Spain some fifteen years ago.

I started shooting with an F80 and then with two second hand FG and FG20. I hope to revive my film shooting again very soon.

But it wasn’t until I got a D300 that I started doing photojournalism.

The D300, the internet and Demotix created the perfect opportunity to do photojournalism. I have recently reached 1,009 stories, 22,543 images and 2,725,376 views. Latest update is that I now have a D800 since October 2013.

I have had images published in the Guardian and Mail On Line, and numerous editorial stock images.

Finally, in my parallel life I also work as English language coach mainly for professional people at manager or executive level. I also specialise in scientific and medical proofreading and editing for academic and medical investigators.
