I've spent the last 25 years behind the lens and love to create.
As a brand new secondary academy, getting the tone and quality of our marketing materials right was imperative. Roger strikes the balance between professional direction, warmth and good humour when working with staff and pupils alike and the end product is of a professional standard it is difficult to achieve in the education sector – I heartily recommend Roger to you for your next project without reservation.
Michael McCulley, Principal, Houlton School, Warwickshire
As a values-led Schools Trust, it's so important to us that our images and footage capture the uniqueness of our academies, whilst at the same time show our connectedness as a Trust family. Roger not only understands this, but has surpassed our expectations in the quality, quantity and speed of his work. He has rapidly become our go-to professional in this area, and we could not be more impressed and pleased with the work he does for the Trust.
James Higham, Chief Executive Officer, Transforming Lives Educational Trust
Roger has worked with speed and efficiency at North Bromsgrove. He is creative, courteous and absolutely understood how to represent our core values as a school. I highly recommend him.
Mr Nick Gibson, Headteacher, North Bromsgrove High School
The children and staff of North Bromsgrove School are to be congratulated on their respectful tribute for Remembrance Day. Despite the Covid-19 pandemic they have prepared a wonderful film which obviously demanded a great deal of time and dedication.

I've been shooting photos since the late nineties and made my living from it for the last 20 years. Surfing and the surf industry has been by main focus for a lot of that time but I can turn my mind to most avenues. I've been doing a lot of work for schools recently and have a current enhanced DBS. The gallery page features a range of my surf, music, school and industry work.
I shoot with the brand new Sony A7IV which produces lush high resolution images along with Sony prime GM glass. In the water I use Aquatech housings and, even though regs mean you don't need to qualify anymore, I qualified as a drone pilot and held a PfCo for years.
I've been making edits for a decade and I love the process of filming, editing and polishing a film until it's just right. I started out doing work for surf brands like Rip Curl, O'Neill and C-Skins and my footage has been on Channel 4 and the BBC. It seems like a lifetime ago that I was having fun with a Canon 7D and iMovie.
I'm now a Final Cut Pro guy and have glass from 24mm to 600mm, a drone, gimbal, in water gear and a range of microphones. So I can shoot most areas of interest but have been focusing on education, nutrition and holiday properties recently.
I've got a subscription to Epidemic Sound so films for clients come with rights cleared music for your YouTube or socials.
Over the last 20 years as a photographer, writer, editor, designer and filmmaker it's been my privilege to work with a lot of good people.
From trying to make an advert shoot with an 80-year old surfer work for Channel 4 to walking a marathon while shooting music festivals all the way to doing copy for brands and publishers it's all been fun. I'm happiest up to my neck in the sea but I'm more than happy to consider any project.
