What's YOUR story?

I’m a London-based director and photographer. But I spent a lot of my professionally formative years as a journalist, seeking out and telling human stories.

And that human aspect still impacts what I do and how I do it.

Whether it's through films or stills, I love telling empathetic and visually engaging stories. 

What’s important to me is the ability to create a coherent narrative from beautifully framed shots. 

I work in a variety of formats, using wide-ranging tools to create my films – from high-end cameras to smartphones. 

I also work as an educator and consultant, helping companies and individuals create better visual content and understand the principles of journalism better.

Clients include: Apple, Microsoft, Cathay Pacific, the Open University, Orange, StartupBootcamp, Great British Chefs, BT, Harth, BBC.


My work has been shortlisted for the second and final round of judging at the 2018 Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize.

My portrait “Confident” was awarded a Honorable Mention at the 2018 International Photography Awards.
