I am a people photographer at heart: portraiture, documentary projects and street scenes make it beat, bringing to life my natural inquisitiveness and desire to tell stories.
I started out professionally in consumer insight and brand strategy, before immersing myself in photography full time. I have travelled extensively and the ethnographical nature of my previous work led me to develop a profound interest in culture and understanding what people are about – something that has continued through my photography.
For me, making photographs is meditative - it allows me to live in the moment and gives me a deeper awareness of the world around me.
I divide my time between London and Somerset and am available for commercial, editorial and non-profit work in the UK and internationally.
