About Me

I'm a freelance photographer specialising in Editorial Portraiture & Headshots - I'm based in London & sometimes Los Angeles (when the British weather gets too apocalyptic).

I'm a non-executive director of the ASSOCIATION OF PHOTOGRAPHERS (AOP) - first formed in 1968 as the Association of Fashion and Advertising Photographers, the AOP is one of the most prestigious professional photographers' associations in the world, whose aims are: to promote and protect the worth and standing of its members, to vigorously defend, educate and lobby for the interests and rights of all photographers, especially in the commercial photographic industry. I am also a member of The APHP.

I've been shooting professionally since 2005. My work has been published in VANITY FAIR, VOGUE, HARPER’S BAZAAR, TATLER (October 2013 front cover), W MAGAZINE, THE GUARDIAN, THE TIMES, THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, THE NEW YORK TIMES, PEOPLE MAGAZINE, THE LADY, PARIS MATCH, LOOK MAGAZINE, YOU MAGAZINE, OK!, AUSTRALIAN WOMEN’S WEEKLY, IRISH INDEPENDENT, US WEEKLY, THE SUNDAY TIMES, THE METRO, THE EVENING STANDARD, THE STAGE, DEADLINE HOLLYWOOD, VARIETY, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER, SCREEN DAILY and many more outlets around the world.

I think of my portfolio as rather eclectic; I shoot in a broad variety of styles and light settings, and particularly love exploring intense vibrant colour and capturing a sense of movement in my images. I'm often drawn to engaging shots with a playfully dark edge. Most clients (predominantly actors) begin a shoot by honestly stating a loathing of having their portraits taken and claiming to be unphotogenic (there's no such thing, fyi), so I endeavour to make an often vulnerable experience (particularly for those who have spent years on set making sure *not* to look into the camera) creative, laid back and enjoyable. If there is any consistent recognisable quality captured in my work I suspect it may be the playful energy of my subjects..

I also work as a filmmaker and writer.
