My passion for photography cannot be separated from the enjoyment that I get from being able use the camera as a means of connecting with people. I help to tell stories of people and their relationship with the places that they inhabit and believe that understanding is best found through learning about the experiences of individuals and the lives they have lived.
Now based in London, having spent the last 8 years living in Tokyo, I help people and brands to develop their own unique stories through my photography. During my time in Japan I worked on two self directed projects 'Dancing In The Streets' - a story about a homeless dance group and 'Master - An Ainu Story', which tells the story of a member of the indigenous Ainu community of Japan which has been exhibited at The Brunei Gallery, SOAS in London and is being shown at Sway Gallery, London and Stockholm and will also be one of the featured pieces in the Projected series at the International Center of Photography in New York.
Whilst in Japan I spent a year assisting fashion photographer Masatoshi Yamashiro, and helped on a variety of shoots, from lifestyle to fashion, shooting for brands including ANAP and Ageha magazine. I also worked for Airbnb, photographing 'Experiences' and ‘Lux’ properties, I have continued to shoot for Airbnb in London as well as for Regus and Spaces and have also shot campaigns for Ascensia Diabetes Care and for Fight Bladder Cancer.
I am equally happy shooting events from engagement parties to triathlon’s and was the main photographer for the 2017 Himalayan Rush Triathlon in Nepal and for the Asian Enduro Series 2017. My photos and writing have been published in Tokyo Weekender, Airasia Travel 360 which can be seen here, as well as having photos of other work published in Lava Magazine , Crank Magazine and Edge Of Humanity Magazine.
