I have been obsessed with images since I was a child. I was given the special edition of the Star Wars trilogy on VHS, beginning my fascination with film. My love of cinema eventually turned into an early career as a cameraman and video editor. After completing a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) Film Studies at the University of London, Queen Mary, I went on to complete a Master of Fine Arts in Film from the Newport Film School where I shot my thesis film on Kodak 16mm B&W film. Like many, I started out as a runner before working as a camera assistant and eventually as a Director of Photography / Cameraman. During this time I shot and edited videos for advertising agencies, and worked for a charity where I co-produced, shot and edited a number of short films with organisations and schools.
After buying a second hand Canon 550D, I spent 3 months travelling around Southeast Asia photographing my adventure... and something clicked. Photography unearthed an excitement and zest for creativity I hadn't felt for some time. It helped me recognise my fascination with how humans live and behave in various surroundings and environments. Much of my photography is what I like to call observational photography - I don't like to interrupt life, but photograph it as it happens, because everyday life intrigues and excites me. My current and most ambitious project is documenting London during the Coronavirus Pandemic.
