About me


Born in England, I studied Photo Media at Plymouth University before travelling to Sydney with itchy feet at the age of 22. I got my first job as a runner on Home & Away and fell into the film industry whilst photography took a temporary back seat. For seven years I worked as an Assistant Director on TV commercials and films including Wolverine, Superman and Australia. During this time I had the opportunity to work alongside a number of incredible photographers. It was these experiences that inspired me to pick up a camera again and pursue a career in photography. I'm now back in the mother land working as a commercial lifestyle photographer. Currently combining my passion for travel and photography, I have shot for brands including Puma, The Sunday Times, North Face, Tesco, Halifax, Adidas, Volkswagen, Luxottica, JD Sports, Tampax and Sony. Inspired by my time spent on TV ads & film sets, I strive to produce work that appears effortless and spontaneous, an approach that matches my aesthetic preference for the bold, clean and simplistic.
