About me

After studying photography at Bournemouth Art School in England, I spent the following 15 years based in London working as an editorial photographer. During this time, I travelled extensively commissioned to photograph musicians and youth subcultures. Identity a theme I have been revisiting ever since. In 2009 I moved to Vietnam where I lived for six years. I fell in love with Vietnamese culture and its people - witnessing a communist country embracing capitalism and undergoing rapid economic and cultural development. This provided the backdrop to a series of long-term photographic projects ('Bloody Chunks', 'Untitled', 'Song' and 'Monobloc') entitled 'The Vietnam Collection'.  This body of work explores Vietnamese life - in all its raw unadulterated beauty. In 2014 I won the Photo District News Award (NYC) for my 'Bloody Chunks' (VIETNAM) work and again in 2016 for my 'Wizkid Fans' (TOGO) series. Im currently based in London working on long-term projects, exhibiting and working on commissioned work.
