About Ian

Thanks for looking at my site. Here’s a little history about me:

When forced to think about the rest of my working life whilst at school, I quite fancied becoming an architect. The thought of imagining – then designing – spaces where people worked, lived and spent time was very appealing. From a young age, I was amazed at how your surroundings could have an impact on your emotions, well-being and outlook. I didn’t understand how creative spaces changed the way you thought without even being recognised on a conscious level, but I wanted to know more. From about the age of 12, I wanted a luxury warehouse apartment with huge windows, high ceilings and underfloor heating. I just thought it was the future!

As it turns out, I wasn’t very good at maths or physics, so an architecture career looked bleak. That, and I didn’t want to spend 7 or 8 years at university.

So my career took a different path – one that lead towards graphic design. I’ve spent most of my working life in various design and marketing agencies. It was here that I discovered photography – in particular architectural photography. It is the perfect mix of technology and creativity for me, and I’m hooked by photographing architecture and interiors. What better way to bring together all the things that I like to do?

I love architecture and interior design
I love photography
I love working in the blue hour
I love supplying people with images that exceed expectation

So here I am. An architectural photographer. Ready to supply you with images for you to use however you want (once the invoice is paid in full, obviously!)

I use a light-painting method of photography, where both natural and artificial light are used to creatively capture indoor and outdoor spaces. Photos are meticulously blended and crafted with expert attention to detail.

I endeavour to create fun, laid-back environments when shooting, whether it be a small apartment or an envy-inducing luxury warehouse loft overlooking the ocean.

When I’m not behind a camera or Photoshop, I might be enjoying fine coffee, stealth camping or dreaming of buying some gliding lessons.
