Documentary and travel, photography and film: specialist in underground culture and unusual adventures. Originally from Yorkshire, I’m now based between the UK and South America (with other trips here and there). I shoot my own projects plus undertake editorial and commercial commissions; always with a documentary eye.
The best way to sum up what I do and where I’m coming from are a few words: freedom, independence, energy, culture, the underground, joy, music, passion, spontaneity, ingenuity, fascination, individuality, night, candid, unusual, immersive, atmosphere.
I believe personal qualities are as important as photographic ones in the field, in addition to an awareness of light, colour and composition, great photographers need communication, persistence and courage to work in this vocation, that is so much more than a job.
Editorial clients and publications include the Guardian Magazine, GEO, the Washington Post, National Geographic Traveller, the Economist, Smithsonian Magazine, Conde Nast Traveller, Vanity Fair Italy, BBC, Profil, La Republica, Lufthansa magazine, the Telegraph, El Pais, Vice, Pearson Education, the Independent, Dazed and Huck.
I also do commercial assignments for clients such as Samsung, Google, ASOS, UNHCR, UNISDR, Haymarket, American Express, Christies, the Arts Council, London Olympics, Age UK, the REA, Camden Council, Boomtown Fair and Arcadia Spectacular.
