About Me

I've been photographing various things since I was very young, but began to take it more seriously after discovering street photography and realising it's possible to create a fascinating photograph by just freezing a fraction of a second of normal everyday life.

I like to photograph unposed spontaneous moments, whether that be on a street or at a gig. I love finding unexpected scenes in unpredictable situations, and enjoy the challenge of being able to react and capture those moments.

My photos have featured in NME, BBC News, The Guardian, Team Rock, Gold Flake Paint, Nitelife Magazine, Jazzwise Magazine, Line Of Best Fit, Bristol Live Magazine, Digital Camera World, The Bristol Cable and Bristol 24/7, among others.

I've used a variety of film and digital cameras, from a 1955 Rolleiflex medium format to a £1 charity shop 35mm camera, and from DSLR to mirrorless to mobile phone. My pictures are also on Instagram and Flickr.

I studied Philosophy at Bristol University and since then I've worked with many media, advertising, entertainment, publishing and technology agencies. I co-ran a record label for a while. I currently work in advertising technology.

Previously I've been privileged to work with the likes of Allied Domecq, BBC, DDB London, Derren Brown, Future Publishing, The Guardian, Hat Trick Productions, Ministry of Sound, Objective Productions, Smirnoff, Sony, Tesco, and Volkswagen.
