  • London, United Kingdom
  • Full Time
  • With 15 years experience in the image marketplace I have cultivated a strong understanding of what makes a powerful visual. My work has won awards from the Creative Review, PDN, AOP, and the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize at the National Gallery, and has appeared in campaigns for clients like Sony, IBM, HSBC, Barclays, Nokia, and Coca-Cola. I am passionate about photography and have spoken at many international events about imagery and our wider visual culture. In addition to the world of photography and advertising I have a keen interest in design, interiors, and good coffee.
