About me
Since my departure from University I have been working as a camera for hire alongside other part time money-earners. I am a driven, creative individual who thrives when given a challenge, having to get hands on with a project in order to capture a specific shot is a driving force in my endeavour to create new and exciting pieces of art. I interned in surf photography and film, it took me around the world following big wave surfers and their entourage. The experience taught me how to squeeze every ounce of energy I have and put it into my work. Sleeping very little and up at the crack of dawn to catch the swell we ran on fumes most of the time. The experience clocked me 70+ hours on RED EPIC cameras. More recently I took a leap into social issues, exploring communities around the Ukraine, documenting the refugee crisis in France and Greece as well as working on more commercial projects for organisations like the UK National Parks.
