I am a focused and confident freelance photographer and lecturer specialising in documentary, editorial and portrait photography.

My work focuses strongly on social issues, from the geo politics and conflicts of the South Caucuses to PTSD and the realities of living with mental health issues. I graduated from University College Falmouth in 2012 with a First Class Honours degree in Press and Editorial Photography.

As well as working on personal projects and commissions I am studying a part time Masters in Documentary Photography at the University of South Wales and lecturing on the BA Photography course at Bath Spa University and the BA Documentary Photography course at Plymouth University.
