I grew up in the town of Nottingham, UK – the home of a thriving BMX community in the early 1990s. At the age of 13 I went to a BMX contest at a nearby skatepark. Local rider and nine-time X-Games gold medallist Jamie Bestwick was there doing backflips. The experience changed my life forever.
Since that cloudy day in 1996 my life has been dedicated to riding and documenting BMX. Photography and BMX are a perfect marriage that I have moulded into a career. I started taking photography seriously at the of 25 and sent some photos to Ride UK BMX magazine. To my surprise the magazine used my photo for the cover, they paid me well and asked me to do more. I quit my office job and I have been a professional photographer ever since.
In the past decade I have co-founded my own magazine, traveled to countless countries, I've survived rocket attacks in Israel, I've been pistol whipped in Argentina and become close friends with the world's top BMX riders. In recent years my photographic interests have shifted to other areas of cycling but BMX photography has been my apprenticeship; it has shaped my entire life and I hope to photograph BMX for years to come.
