Hello, this is the section where you can learn a bit about the person who is connected to the finger that clicks the pics.

I was born in Hertfordshire, but for people whose UK geography isn’t great I tell them I’m from London (it’s very close). I left ‘London’ for the Far East in 2009 and ended up in Tokyo, which is where I got serious about photography.

Whilst in Japan I have photographed and made videos for companies including Panasonic, Airbnb and Expedia as well as working with artists and models on personal projects. I also was assistant to fashion photographer Masatoshi Yamashiro, which gave me a good grounding in portrait and professional photography, workin with clients such as ANAP, Ageha Magazine and various Japanese celebrities.

I have also worked on two self directed documentaries whilst in Japan - one on homelessness, which will be featured in the October edition of Tokyo Weekender and one on The Ainu - the indigenous people of Japan - which will be exhibited at SOAS in London from October - December 2018. 

I initially came to Japan to study acupuncture, and although photography took over my life I still have the passion to help people. I love to see people improve in whatever it is that they do and so I aim to dedicate my photography to helping clients build their business and tell the story of their brand. I will work with you to tailor make your imagery for your website, promotional materials or social media. I can also build your website and help to develop an instagram ‘look’, designing a colour palette and filters for your brand.

I also shoot 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 a number of publications including Lava Magazine Crank Magazine and Edge Of Humanity Magazine.

Photography for me is the art of life. The connection with people that you can through a camera them is truly unique and is an interaction between the people on either side of the camera. I am always working to improve my craft and myself - it is a symbiotic relationship that has no end.
