About me
I am a freelance photographer specialising in sportswear and active lifestyle. I graduated from the University of Brighton in 2008 and was that year named Young Fashion Photographer of the Year. In 2009 I was awarded the RPS Jeff Vickers Bursary to support a young commercial photographer, and these awards helped jump start my career, shooting fashion for a range of brands and magazines such as ELLE, Topshop, The Pool, Emily & Fin, ADAY and Amazon. In recent years I have grown a personal passion for sport and fitness, and have incorporated this into my work, shooting for sportswear brands such as Adidas, Nike, Puma, Active in Style and Fashercise, and lifestyle companies such as Soho House Group, Heartcore and Boom Cycle. I recently did my first underwater shoot and want to explore this more in 2020!

Gymnasts are renowned for their strength and athleticism but also their grace and poise, and this combination of strength and femininity appealed to me. I c
