Photographer

I describe my work as “editorial documentary” because I shoot in a documentary style and edit with an editorial eye, for me this has always been an important way of captivating an audience – giving them the truth with an edit that brings out the beauty of the subject.

I work with minimal equipment and I shoot what is happening around me. Much of my assignment work has been for not for profits around the world, working on humanitarian, wildlife, environmental and animal welfare causes as well as for brand and tourism shoots for companies, publications, and advertising.

Occasionally I like to combine natural light with a portable studio lighting kit – to help me highlight who I’m shooting or shine some light in a dark place.

For examples of my work, please take a look at my portfolio, and for specific client examples of the fundraising campaigns or editorials I have shot, please get in touch.

Filmmaker

For seven years I worked in the not for profit sector, multitasking as a filmmaker and photographer – acting as a producer, director, editor and videographer. I have directed as well as a photographed in field communities around the world, anywhere from rural villages across Africa, Asia and Central America, to brick kilns and coal mines. 

I’ve been very luck to work with some of the industries most talented videographers and creative directors, working alone or with agencies to bring together teams to produce fundraising and social media campaigns, television commercials, and documentaries.

When I’m not on a shoot I’m often at home working on an editing project. You can take a look at some of my films in my portfolio.
