About me
I am an experienced and very versatile storyteller with a multifaceted career in multimedia and video production – my clients include the BBC Philharmonic and The Guardian, among others. Alongside my practice as a visual journalist for major news organisations, I have built an eclectic body of work – with both still and moving images – which spans from award-winning photofilms to documentaries and interactive websites for NGOs to shorts for wine makers and farmers. Based in Manchester, as a photographer I specialise in portraiture.

    Artist portraits – it's not all about headshotsAs a portrait photographer, I take headshots. Loads of them. Especially for actors and performers. Actor headshots have their own grammar – the appropriate light, the subtle nod to a desired casting type, the eye as the fulcrum of the composition – which I fully respect (and try to adhere to as best as I can).

  • Back to my roots – a series of B&W portraits
    Back to my roots – a series of B&W portraitsShooting with a black and white-only setting can be a risky choice, as there is no safety net – it's impossible to revert to colours as the picture in colours does not exist at all. But it's a risk worth taking for someone like me, who spent a significant part (to date, still the longest part) of my photographic career using B&W films.

An older officer, wearing a pink tutu, is standing in a corner – the room is the Ikea showroom I visited yesterday, but empty and smelling of jasmine. Clang! “You can drink if you want”. “No I’m OK”, I whisper. Then I realise that the glass is nicely hanging on the edge of the table. I am suddenly thirsty. I touch the glass. It crashes on the floor. I scream. Water everywhere. I wake up,
