Biography

My love of street photography dates back to the 80s when I would wander the streets of Camden Town, with my Leica slung over my arm, documenting the rich and varied expression of street life at that time.

In the early 1990s I started to photograph the emerging Jamaican ‘Dancehall’ music scene in Kingston Jamaica. With their daring homemade outfits and street dances, the Dancehall Queens-of-the-night with their very own ‘Ghetto Couture’, would ′Cinderella-like′ slip away at dawn, back to the humdrum life in the ghettos of Down Town Kingston. During this time, I also taught photography at the Edna Manley College in the Jamaican capital. My time in Jamaica came to be a very rich and rewarding experience and one that will stay with me forever. My images from this period have been extensively published and exhibited worldwide.

Street Style Aesthetic came into life In November 2008. It was then that I decided that it would also be a great idea to run with the tag line, “It’s not just the clothes – it’s the people who wear them”.

I started StreetStyleAesthetic as an experienced editorial photographer and my career started in 1986 and It was in 2008 that I decided  to bring my brand of  Street Style Fashion photography to the world of  fashion.
