  • The Body Shop Showreel
    The Body Shop ShowreelAs I'm sure most of you will have seen in the news, The Body Shop is going through some radical change in an attempt to make the business profitable again. With this, they have unfortunately made a number of my colleagues (and friends) redundant, who are some of the most talented people I've worked with. This showreel shows just some of the amazing work we've achieved together in the past 2 years. I urge hiring managers to prioritise The Body Shop candidates in creative roles you're advertising
  • Regent Hotels - Hallmarks Lifestyle Photography

From innovative guest experience hallmarks to never seen before hotel design, we have a clear ambition to create the world's most prestigious luxury hotels. This shoot, including stills and video, was to capture what we envisioned was the Regent Hotel of the future.
