Bio


My career in film-making and photography began after I graduated with a degree from the Kent Institute of Art & Design in 2002.

I have participated in many exhibitions selling work and building a client base. In 2008 my prize-winning photography afforded me the opportunity to open my portfolio to the global market and I was able to start selling my work internationally.

Some of my past clients include:

East 53rd Gallery
EKBS
National Examiner (USA)
Sonntags Blick Magazin (Germany)
Zoo Magazine (Australia)

I am now expanding my freelance film-making and photography whilst still pursuing personal projects.
