About

I’m a London based portrait photographer- originally hailing from the East Midlands- with work featuring in many British and international publications.

I love meeting people and find that portraiture perfectly marries this with my desire to create engaging images. My commissions can be very diverse from time pressure portraits of Celebrities, Politicians and Musicians, through to more relaxed encounters with everyday people and reportage stories. My work allows me to travel across the country and beyond.

I’ve been lucky enough over the last few years to meet and photograph some prominent people including HH Dalai Lama, Duke of Cambridge, Noel Gallagher, Caitlin Moran, Zandra Rhodes, Ricky Gervais, The Killers front man Brandon Flowers, and many others including a trip to Downing Street to photograph a Prime Minister.

In 2019 I was one of the winners of the Portrait of Britain Awards and in 2018 my portrait of MP Helen Hayes was featured as part of the 209 Women exhibition in Parliament- a momentous show that saw the walls of Westminster adorned with portraits of all the currently sitting female MP’s for the first time in it’s history.

My personal projects include an ongoing collection of dreamers, doers, thinkers and social entrepreneurs around the UK called Recourse, and a collection of portraits and filmed interviews with former GDR citizens who collected the ‘begrüßungsgeld’ – welcome money- given to them by the West German government after the wall came down.
