About

I grew up in the South West England and studied Psychology at The University of Leeds. Moving to London I worked with photographer Laurence Dutton and together we worked on projects for Getty Images and other commercial clients for three years.

I have created projects for Coaching For Hope, South Africa; WIZO, Israel; Sandblast, Algeria; Medical Action, Myanmar; The Testimony Project, U.K. Each project was aimed at communicating the work of these organisations by telling the story of an individual or community to be used as an advertising tool to raise money and support.

More recently my work marries documentary and conceptual approaches for personal and commercial work.

I have shot campaigns for a wide range of companies to include: Interior designers Rümker, aeronautic engineers A7 Integration A2&Co, The Royal Opera House, Sadler’s Wells, Penguin Books, Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital, Red Consultancy, Second Movement Opera, and fashion designer Sindiso Khumalo. I have produced work for record labels including Reclaimed Goods and Inch Time Records.

My work has been published in The Sunday Telegraph, The Times, Tatler, Sunday Mirror Magazine, Coven Magazine, ManOn Magazine,  Lenscratch, Covid Pictures, The London Paper, Journal Metro & Dodho Magazine (article), amongst others.

Personal projects include After the Kids Go to Sleep: A reflection on  my experience of motherhood. Flashes of Light: An ongoing series exploring our family dynamic, our always growing and changing relationships with ourselves, each other and the natural world. Demo-crazy: images and audio recordings reflecting the political unrest and uncertainty in Myanmar, and Devil’s Garden: a series of images that reflect on the external geographical landscape and the individual experience of the Saharawi people in exile in Algeria.

During the first lockdown of the pandemic in 2020 I photographed 50 people (Even When It Is Grey) in their homes and recorded their experiences. The portraits have been included in a number of publications, exhibitions and international photography festivals.

Together photographer Alison Palmer I produced The Footballers a series of portraits of 11 of England Women’s Senior Football Squad shot between 2009 and 2012 the project charts the transition of the female game from amateur to professional in the U.K. The images exhibited in Wembley Stadium, London, FOFI, Bristol and were part of an exhibition touring the UK.

Currently living in Montréal, Quebec, I balance independent projects with commissions from charities, NGOs, commercial clients and private individuals.
