About me
I am a versatile and efficient photographer who brings the storytelling quality of reportage photography to my commercial shoots.

  • Comic Relief: Campaign Against Living Miserably
    Comic Relief: Campaign Against Living MiserablyFollowing a prolonged period of difficulty, in 2017 over Christmas, Paul walked down to the beach. He made the choice to kill himself by getting drunk and walking into the sea. His plan was to just feel numb and drift away. Whilst waist deep in the sea he began listening to a podcast featuring Professor Green discussing the suicide of his own father and the effect it had on his life. Paul realised he didn’t want to leave his young son in the same way and rang the number for Calm (the Campaign Ag
