About me


I am a versatile and open-minded individual who thrives in creative situations, a key team member with the ability to stay calm in high pressure environments. My strong interpersonal skills have allowed me to work with a range of clients of varying sectors across the UK. I have a strong desire to work in both Photography and Video Production, I am always looking to broaden current skill set whilst fine tuning my existing capabilities. My love of photography has allowed me to develop both my practical and cultural understanding of the art, through a wide range of work placements and experience. i have mastered the ability to capture the perfect photograph in one shot and pride myself on this skill. Understanding lighting, composition and narrative has been key factor to my personal development. My preferred style of photography is Reportage, I love being able to document life with the click of the shutter and capturing subjects in a more natural state gives my work a more authentic feel, creating perspective and adding narrative and character. In 2012 myself & two colleagues created a start up video production company called Well Fed Films. We have completed a number of projects, ranging from promotional material for shoe stores to music videos. We aim to work with people with a real need of getting their message out to the world and it's why we choose to work with companies & brands who need the extra push, or creative flair to get them noticed on the web.
