Welcome to Phototyke Images !
Welcome to my website and I hope you enjoy viewing my galleries and portfolios. I’m a photographer based in Sydney, Australia but grew up in Yorkshire and it was there, as a young ‘tyke’, that I was introduced to photography by my art teacher. I’ve never been too far away from a camera ever since. After ‘hanging my boots up’ from playing football I felt the need to still be connected to sport and that was the catalyst to combine my two passions – sport and photography.
Whilst I’ve been shooting sports for over a decade I also complete a lot of event, editorial and corporate assignments which have given me a very broad spectrum of photography experience / knowledge. I’ve also experience in ‘behind the scenes / production stills work’ for video/commercial shoots.
I value working with clients and strive to offer a personal and friendly service, I believe that great creativity is often the result of close collaboration with clients to understand their needs.
