My experience

I have experience of covering sports events including official match night photography for the Cardiff Devils and Cardiff Fire ice hockey clubs. I have covered major ice hockey finals for the Elite Ice Hockey League, including the 2019 and 2020 Challenge Cup Finals, as well as photographing the first international ice hockey game at Ice Arena Wales between Great Britain and Finland in 2016.

My ice hockey photos have been published in news articles and featured in the media including the BBC Sport website and Premier Sports TV channel.

As part of the Football Association of Wales hosting the 2017 UEFA Champions League Final in Cardiff, I was selected as the assistant photographer for the ‘Legendary Trophy Tour of Wales’ experience photographing iconic locations and visiting local communities all across the country.

I have also worked with South Wales based serviced accommodation specialists Tŷ SA since 2019, providing professional property photos to advertise their property lets online and for marketing purposes on social media.

Where it started

My interest in photography sparked from a young age. Following in the footsteps of my dad and his love for photography, I regularly had a camera in my hand capturing images wherever I went. This interest naturally grew from a hobby into a career over time, learning new skills and developing a keen eye for detail.

My passion

I have a passion for sports photography and continue to build on my portfolio drawing on my keen eye for detail and perfection. I am also a keen travel photographer, taking my camera on local adventures and trips to foreign countries.
