Projects
  • Black Lives Matter - Protest, London, 3 June 2020
    Black Lives Matter - Protest, London, 3 June 2020I covered the Black Lives Matters protest in central London as a freelance stills photographer. It was an exceptionally dynamic and passionate event, which demanded news photography that showed the protesters' depth of feeling. I filed to multiple agencies and newsrooms directly from the field, editing batches on my iPad between locations - meaning I could cover a lot more action that would have been possible if I'd been carrying heavier kit. My work has been used by Vice magazine to illustrate
  • Architecture panel discussion event photography
    Architecture panel discussion event photographyIn 2017 I was commissioned to provide supporting event imagery for an architectural panel discussion at Battersea Arts Centre, working to another photographer. Despite significant technical challenges with lighting and colour cast, I delivered a series of images showing the panel discussion itself, as well as attendees getting to know each other beforehand.
  • News and documentary show reel

  • Fundraising film campaign
    Fundraising film campaignMy colleague Rob Downham and I worked together on a short film to support fundraising efforts by the Forces Media Academy. Drawing on archive footage of students at the Academy and shooting original content using a Sony FS5, we created a film that used veterans' emotional testimony to demonstrate the Academy's strong pedigree as a pathway to full-time media careers.
  • Mental health film
    Mental health filmIn May 2019 I made a short film about the mental health benefits of contact with nature. Based on a mountaineering trip through the stunning landscape of the Lake District, the film looks at my own experiences of mental illness and includes interviews with other walkers, a therapist and a military veteran who suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder. I self-shot all the content for this film, using an Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mk II mirrorless camera - lightweight and robust, perfect for shooting in
  • Andy Wasley Video Show Reel
    Andy Wasley Video Show ReelI'm currently looking for new opportunities to tell stories about amazing people and places, the great outdoors and our precious environment, using my experience as a visual story teller. This show reel includes samples of my video work as a producer/art director for the Royal Air Force in PR and humanitarian campaigns, and as a self-shooting documentary filmmaker.

  • Mental Health Promo Campaign
    Mental Health Promo CampaignMind Allies wanted an emotive hook. We came up with the idea of expanding on a talking head by introducing the green screen to allow for flexibility. The combo of talking heads and motion graphics has an impressive result. The guys at Mind Allies were delighted with the results.
