About me
Driven by an enthusiasm for storytelling and connecting with people, my work explores the everyday human and their lives. My portraiture and documentary work best exemplify my love of people, where the mutual trust between photographer and subject is visible. It's essential for me to either research the subject or spend time getting to know them. This interaction results in me making pictures that capture stories and the shared experiences that make us human. In addition to my practice, I lecture, critique and provide workshops. Selected clients: Adidas, Canon, Crack Magazine, Getty Images, Google, Lululemon, M&C Saatchi, MAMA Festivals, Phantom, Printworks, Red Bull Music UK, The Sunday Times Drop a line if you want to connect or a commission that we can work on!

I hadn't done anything remotely close to this, so a big thank you to all involved. The desired result was a collection of images that are colourful, warm and maybe a little feel refreshing.

The series consists of 18 portraits taken during two nationwide lockdowns, add
