About me

Overview
Although only 31, I have extensive experience in fashion and interiors photography, and an established reputation as one of the UK’s leading nature photographers. I have lived and worked in South America, Canada, Europe, Australia, the United States and the Caribbean. My extensive outdoors and fashion photography reflects this global perspective, and I have been well received in New York, London, Miami and Sydney. I am now looking for a fashion photography role, which will align with my interests in Nature, and my global lifestyle. I currently split my time between London, Europe and the United States.

Work Experience
I have always been passionate about photography and even before college I did events photography in Canada. I started work as the second photographer for a freelance UK portrait photographer, and then worked as a theatre photographer in London, working on stage and headshots. In Sydney in my early twenties I worked for Tangent Fashion Magazine, shooting new designers’ look-books and catalogues, as well as various catwalk fashion shows. I have extensive experience as a freelance, self-starter, working on both studio and outdoors projects. In recent years I have concentrated on outdoor photo shoots for Nature photography, in Asia and South America, interior shoots in Europe, and model work in London and the United States. I always like to be creative, and flip things in a new way.

Exhibitions Publications
I have exhibited successfully at Art Miami, AAF New York and London. My work was well received by the press, New York Examiner saying I am one of those “who you should look out for”, describing my work as” playful”. Art Fortune chose “Calm After the Storm” as the best image for the show. Apart from my own book, “The Return to Beauty,” which was published to co-inside with a solo exhibition in London of that name, I have been published in various national and international newspapers and magazines, including “El Pais” and “La Provincia” in Madrid, and “Tangent Fashion” in Sydney.
