Extra information:

I’m an artist and writer based in Nottinghamshire, with easy access to the A1, M1 and east coast mainline. My specialities include representation of Town & Country life (I am able to ride a horse up to 17h), military history (I hold security clearance to UK SC Level) as well as leisure and hobbies, including arts and crafts. I have four books released in 2020 with a further eight due for release in 2021.

My writing style ranges from Economist to Gonzo and I produce features of 1,000 words plus and books 60,000 words plus. I am an accomplished award-winning photographer and. seasoned researcher and am proud of my high standards. My work has been used by the Pen & Sword Books, the BBC, Reach PLC, as well as Government Agencies, Charities as well as luxury lifestyle brands.

I am free to consider commissions and retainers and am always looking for new themes to explore. I work to either NUJ or self-set rates, so if you have a budget please be aware it may not cover my costs.

I am currently working with two charity and NGO clients (Pro Bono) and am not taking on any more Pro Bono works for the foreseeable future. Thank you for your understanding.
