About me
I am a London-based documentary filmmaker specialising in portraits of creative spaces and practices worldwide. My work aims to reveal stories around craftsmanship, ritual and the natural world by capturing creators, their work and the culture they inhabit. As well as commissions I'm open to collaborations with other artists and relevant causes. So please reach out and say hello if you've got a subject you'd like to capture on film. In these current times of separation and distance, I'm also developing concepts of how video can deploy art virtually and offer an alternative experience to live exhibition. Recently I have worked with 180 Strand, British Council, the London Symphony Orchestra, Film Video Umbrella and Gropius Bau.
