Originally from London, Adam’s enthusiasm for photography was formulated when studying in Australia and further invigorated by his extensive travels around Europe, Asia and the Americas. However, it was only after being diagnosed with Chronic Daily Migraine which left him being forced to spend almost two years lying in a dark room, that Adam’s passion for taking pictures was galvanized from a hobby into a concrete career. Indeed, he credits much of his ability to see the artistic even in the most mundane subject matter as stemming from the absence of light, color and form during this debilitating period. His fine-art work has been displayed in museums across America, has hung in state senates and forms part of exclusive private collections including the "Sir Elton John Photography Collection". A selection of this work is constantly being shown and made available via the print store on this site.
Adam also enjoys regularly providing photography instruction and training classes to FTSE 100 companies including HP, Clifford Chance, Slaughter and May and Google. More details of his photography classes can be found here.
Moreover, Adam uses his photography as leverage to improve migraine awareness by donating a number of his images and has worked for non-profit organziations including the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), C.S Mott Children Hospital, Sport Relief, 1Goal, Pledge For Humanity, Rays of Sunshine, Miracle Messages and Chai Cancer Care.
