About Me

I am a photographer living in Bristol, UK, where I spend most of my time getting excited by new music, and photographing musicians and gigs, street scenes, people and places.

I studied Philosophy at Bristol University and since then I've worked with many media, advertising, entertainment, publishing and technology businesses in various capacities.

I was most recently Operations Director at an online advertising technology company.

Previously I co-founded a media agency and a record label, as well as working on online campaigns for the digital arm of one of the world’s largest advertising agencies, and consulting with other businesses in freelance roles.

Over time 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.

I’m an experienced photographer, web systems engineer, audio producer, coffee drinker, and an incompetent but enthusiastic drummer.

According to, I've recently been listening to Raketkanon, One Day As A Lion, Kyuss, Sasquatch, Aldous Harding, Brant Bjork, Clutch, Radio Moscow, Billie Marten, Fu Manchu, Windhand, All Them Witches, Earth, Drahla and Melvins.
