Hank's Bio

Professional Photographer UK and Asia

Hank - UK Portait Photographer

Hank began his career as a cavalry officer in the British Army where he spent 11 happy years soldiering in a number of far-flung outposts.

It happened that, on one important occasion during this period of service, the photographic skills that Hank had developed as a student at Ampleforth College were called upon in unusual and exciting circumstances. Diana Princess of Wales was invited to attend a special military function and Hank was commissioned to cover the event as official photographer.

This defining moment sealed Hank’s reputation and launched his career in portrait photography that has since spanned two highly successful decades.

Hank’s lifelong passion for portraiture is reflected in the outstanding results that he has achieved for a broad range of discerning customers. He has honed his skills over time, developing his informal style that is now instantly recognizable. Capitalising on his ability to charm and set at ease, Hank’s natural, charismatic portraits captivate and truly embody The Art of Photography.

When in London, Hank is based in Piccadilly, not far from the Ritz Hotel. He visits the Middle East and Asia throughout the year.
