London, United Kingdom
I am a London situation lens based creative. This means I have vast experience and plenty of knowledge in both photography and filmmaking. I shoot photography as my passion mainly working on film with my 5x4 camera capturing portraits and environments. Film-wise I have worked a lot on promos, behind the scenes, live/event work, virals, ads etc but I have found a passion for making films and have gone down the same route as I did with my photography, telling amazing and extraordinary stories through imagery as well as narrative.

The origins of sumo wrestling date back over 2000 years with it’s rituals and traditions firmly rooted in Shintoism and with Japanese mythology accrediting the existence of Japan to the outcome of a sumo bout between gods. Sumo champions are huge celebrities in Japan and are given the upmost honour and respect.
It turned out I had arrived in Nou on the first day of the school year and was introduced to the fresh faced students who as young as 12 years old had decided to move out of their family homes and to move in with their fellow sumo students. I joined the new group at 7am for their first walk to the training dohyo (the ring where wrestling bouts take place). Without being able to communicate with each other we all walked up the hill saying good morning to every single passer by until we reached their new high school, overlooked by beautiful snow capped mountains.
Undocumented Living: In The Land Of The Free
IN JUNE 2014 I TRAVELLED TO HOUSTON, TEXAS IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA WITH THE AIM OF DOCUMENTING INDIVIDUALS WORKING AND LIVING IN A COUNTRY WHERE THOUSANDS STRIVE TO FIND A BETTER LIFE.
THESE PEOPLE ARE FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD, BUT LARGELY FROM CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN AMERICAS, ARE WIDELY REFERRED TO AND LABELLED AS UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS.DESPITE THE NUMBERS DEPORTED BY PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA DURING HIS TERM BEING LARGER THAN HIS PREDECESSOR GEORGE BUSH IT WAS UNSURPRISINGLY EASY TO SEE EVIDENCE OF UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS LIVING AND WORKING IN THE CITY OF HOUSTON.
