About Me

I am a Manchester-based photographer working predominantly across the North of England. As a successful graduate, I have developed a unique creative vision supported by more than 4 years of practical industry experience and an extended knowledge of classic photographic theory and history.

Possessing an affinity for technical accuracy and a clear understanding of the importance of narrative, I endeavour to create detailed, yet compelling work - whilst maintaining a sense of realism and relevancy to the subject throughout.

Practice & Experience

Photographically, I am most interested in people and their relationships with their environment, the landscape, and those around them. The majority of my personal work naturally follows my interests and research; whilst commercially, my work ranges from covering corporate events, to product shoots or producing promotional/marketing material. With experience both on-location and in studio, I have worked across the UK as well as in London for various periods of time.

Preferring a slower, more precise practice - my work is created using photographic film where possible, in addition to digital mediums for both commercial photography and videography.
