Jim is a freelance photographer supplying pictures primarily for magazine features and working on both PR and corporate commissions.
His twenty-eight year career in photojournalism has seen his work appear in many national newspapers, regional dailies and magazines. His pictures have been said to reflect contemporary life with an engaging and sometimes light-hearted twist.
With an emphasis on features his style has attained several awards including two Guild of Picture Editor awards for Arts and Entertainment Photographer of the Year and the Fuji News Photographer of the Year.
He was awarded the Newsquest Photographer of the Year prize in 2000, and other industry achievements include nominations for the BT Regional Photographer of the Year and the UK Press Gazette awards. In 2011 he was a finalist in the features category of the PPY awards.
He is in his element when given a bunch of props, a bunch of people and the starting point of a story to tell - better still are the requests that begin with the words "Have you got any ideas for this one, Jim?".
At the 2015 Chiddingly Artists Open Studios event there will be a wide selection of images available as greeting cards and mounted prints.
