I was born with Spina bifida and grew up in Crowborough, East Sussex, before moving to Brighton to take a degree in Physics and Computing at Sussex University. I went on to become a software developer for several years, but after a further spinal injury found full-time work too demanding so decided to promote the majority of my work under the title AndyHat Consulting. The name "Photography on Wheels" was suggested by a local café /gallery owner as a good title under which to exhibit my photography.

I’m passionate about photography and I was head volunteer photographer for three local non-profit organizations including Brighton Carnival, for which I have also coordinated a team of volunteer photographers. My Carnival photographs can been seen on their website gallery and on the Brighton Carnival Flickr page. I also have a number of pictures on display in pubs and cafés around Brighton. I’ve provided flower photos for the Royal Pavilion in Brighton and in 2009 entered the International Garden Photographer of the Year competition. All my photographs are taken from a unique wheelchair perspective.
