About me

I'm a freelance photographer based in Cambridge, specialising in the documentation of artworks and cultural artefacts, as well as arts-related events. I am currently working at the University of Cambridge Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology in the role of Photo Collections Assistant. I graduated from Anglia Ruskin University in 2013 with a first class honours degree in Photography. Since then I have worked on various part-time and freelance jobs within the arts and cultural heritage sector. I am particularly interested in working with research and documentary projects relating to arts, culture and the environment. My personal work frequently relates to ongoing processes of change and development in landscapes and environments, and I am especially interested in finding opportunities to take this further.
