He spent a year in the USA under the mentorship of William Goldman & John Cleese. He then worked for over a decade as a screenwriter for the some of the UK’s leading film & TV companies.
Since 2007 Colin has established himself as a versatile photographer, predominantly in the world of film & TV publicity. Credits include Sherlock, Broadchurch, Outnumbered, Dracula, A Young Doctor’s Notebook and the upcoming Mr Sloane & Houdini.
