About Me

I'm a photographer living in Bristol UK, where I spend my time photographing portraits, musicians and gigs, street scenes, and documentary projects; and getting excited by new music and new lenses...

I produce original and distinctive portraits and band/artist promo photos, as well as documenting the exciting live music scene in Bristol, some street photography, and other documentary projects.

My work has featured in NME, Kerrang, Total Guitar, BBC News, The Guardian, Team Rock, Nitelife Magazine, Digital Camera World and So Young Magazine, among others, as well as being used heavily in the Bristol Music: Seven Decades of Sound exhibition in 2018.

According to, I've recently been listening to Kvelertak, Spidergawd, Snowy Dunes, Lüt, Red Scalp, Suncraft and Too Piste.

Since graduating from Bristol University with a BA Degree in Philosophy, 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 record label and a media agency, 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 a freelance capacity.

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.
