About your local photographer

It was after ten months based in Melbourne, Australia and I was about to travel to the bright lights of Hong Kong that I visited a small camera store and purchased a Panasonic Lumix LX3. Just three weeks later I was standing in the dark on a bridge in Hong Kong, capturing the light trail shots that I had dreamt of just a few days earlier.

After four years shooting a variety of genres such as weddings and events I stumbled across architecture photography in late 2013, and I have been shooting inside abandoned spaces and buildings ever since.

In 2014 I began shooting my first abandoned building series ‘Decadence’, and six years on I have now built up a large portfolio taken in some of the most striking locations in Europe and beyond. My primary focus is capturing rich colour palettes and straight lines in the camera, then utilising modern post-processing techniques to develop each photograph.

During 2015 I have been signed with my current art agency Goodman & Co, based in the Netherlands. They sell large format plexi-glass pieces of my artwork to galleries across Europe. I have also hosted two large exhibitions here in my home city of Norwich, including being invited to exhibit at the prestigious ‘Art Fair East’ trade show in the city.

Some of my work has been shortlisted in several competitions, most recently a category winner for Architecture in both the Chromatic colour awards and the ND Awards 2017, and in March 2018, I was runner up in the Architecture category of the IPOTY competition.

I’ve been a Pro Partner for Benro (UK) and an ambassador for Tenba bags since February 2017 as well as holding an affiliation with 5.11 Tactical, who help me out with luggage, bags and clothing – I have held this affiliation since mid 2019.

As you will see from my portfolio, travel plays a huge part in my image-making. I have always been fascinated by different cultures, foods, textures and colours. It is this love for travel, combined with my deep passion for photography, that keeps me motivated and dedicated to putting in the long lonely hours of research and logistical planning to then get out with the camera time and time again.

I hail from the fine city of Norwich in the United Kingdom, having spent the best part of thirty years growing up there it was a place I always returned to after travelling. However, since January 2019 I have taken to the road full-time to undertake a nomadic lifestyle with my girlfriend Jade as we strive to grow a better photography and adventure tour business.

If you have any questions at all, please do get in touch – I love hearing from people all over the world.

  • I wasn't aware this was a part 2 or at a fairly basic level of editing. A better description would have set expectations correctly. The colourful language at the start wasn't appreciated either.

  • A great presentation by JK. Very informative, and as a Photoshop Instructor by trade, it's always nice to see how someone else edits and to pick up the occasional trick too.
    Would definitely recommend JK's talk to anyone interested in shooting and editing architecture.

  • So appreciated JK's generosity in sharing tips and techniques. And that was in addition to the gorgeous locations he showed us. I've always had a real passion for old and hidden spaces . . the search became much harder when I left Istanbul to live in Montreal. So thank you, JK that was a glorious vicarious trip.
