About me

British documentary and editorial portrait photographer, born in Ipswich, 1993. Available for work both in the UK and overseas. Also an Army Commando, I will shortly graduate from Leeds College of Art with a Ba (Hons) Photography this 2017. I split my time between Leeds and London, and also frequently can be found in the United States of America. My work has been purchased and published internationally. Most conspicuously, I am a frequent contributor to LAW Magazine. I have also worked on commissioned projects for Olympus Camera, British Art Show, The British Fashion Council, Adidas and University of Leeds. I have also worked with Leeds graphic designer Josiah Craven and artist Jamie Hudson. I currently sell printed work though my own website and Leeds' own Village bookstore. I am also the creator of www.fresh-aire.co.uk

Creative Intern

LAW Magazine

  • During my university studies, I took time out to pursue a short internship at LIVES AND WORKS. Responsibilities included transportation garments between London based fashion labels and PR agencies, drawing story boards, proposing new content, and attending meetings with collaborating and contributing designers and photographers. This included Bafic, Harry Mitchell and Cara Messina of Y'Oh Streetwear. I was challenged with creating a proposal for an editorial featuring the Adidas NMD shoe, which was then later produced by LAW and published in their magazine. The internship also lead to me shooting a single page spread for LAW 8, the British Infrastructure issue. This was a typological series of six images, titled 'Headlights of Ordinary Cars', photographed in Leeds. I have since become a frequent contributing photographer to LAW magazine.

Royal Engineers Commando

  • Lympstone, UK
  • am currently an Reservist, ranked Sapper, in 131 Commando Squadron, 24 Commando Engineer Regiment. I earned my green beret after the 30 mile march, conducted at the conclusion of the Reserve Forces Commando Course in May 2014, earning the title 'Army Commando'. I have since deployed on exercises all over the world, most conspicuously in the USA with the US Marines, and in Central Europe under NATO command. I have also completed the famously arduous All Arms Pre-Parachute Selection. For my efforts as an attached member of 51 Parachute Engineer Squadron, I received the 23 Parachute Engineer Regiment Commanding Officer's Commendation for my efforts. This was for speaking French at a crucial phase of the exercise which involved French airborne troops, when no other francophone person could be found. Through the Army Reserve I have received training in infantry command tactics, military survival, amphibious and mountain operations, combat engineering, chainsaw use, emergency life support, explosives, and resistance to interrogation. In the near future I will be attending the winter and mountain warfare training course in the Norwegian Arctic. Presently I am pursuing officer training, with a view to becoming a Troop Commander.
