Words. Where would we be without them? Well, you wouldn't be reading this for a start!

There are almost 200,000 of them in the English language and the average native English speaker has around 20,000 active words in their vocabulary. However you look at it, that's a lot of words. So how do you find just the right ones to use when it comes to writing great copy and content for your business?

Finding the words is one thing. Deciding on exactly how you're going to weave them into a piece of creatively written and engaging copy could be a challenge too far. Then there's your valuable time to consider too. And if you simply hate writing...

But fear not, help is at hand. I'm Andrew, a copywriter who can save you the time and hassle. I'll find just the right words and then skilfully weave them into compelling and creatively written copy and content.

I've always loved words - their origins and their uses - which is quite useful for a copywriter. I also sometimes write for magazines. And, for twenty years, I've been a freelance landscape and location photographer. However, an old injury has forced a change of direction upon me. Away from photography to making copywriting my main focus. Something I'd never imagined doing until now, but I love every minute of it.

What can I say? Your words took me on a journey. I was fully engaged and absolutely

Bluebell Quote

It was from doing triple-jump for the very first time in my first year at secondary school, way back in 1975, that has led me into the world of copywriting. A strange route I know and one I could never have planned.

At some point I damaged one of my sacroiliac joints (they connect the spine and pelvis) and with a combination of time and forty plus years of pain and discomfort, it was becoming harder to undertake photographic shoots at the rate I was. A change was needed. I was already writing for various UK magazines - consumer and trade - writing features and illustrated articles, and really enjoyed the whole process - the research and writing. So writing more seemed the obvious choice. But I also fancied a new challenge. And copywriting fitted the bill perfectly.

So here I am!

Copywriting is often about telling a story, a skill that I've honed with my magazine writing. And I currently have around 30 pieces to my name. These include 18 illustrated articles (10 for one major magazine series), covering topics as diverse as gardens, photography, history and travel. And just in case you're wondering, yes, all the photography you see on this site is mine. Just to make it a little different from most copywriter websites.

With a background that's also covered publishing and direct mail as well as print and design project management, words have been a recurring theme throughout my working life in one form or another. Which all adds up to some invaluable experience for the varied world of copywriting.

Combine that with the very latest copywriter training and qualification behind me, a proven ability to write and being someone who genuinely enjoys researching topics (try writing a magazine article without research) and you have a copywriter who can bring the power of words to your business copy and content. Whatever you need to say. However you need to say it.
