INFO

I was fortunate enough to discover my interest in photography at the early age of fourteen. I began by shooting conceptual photography and experimental self-portraiture to hone my skills in my suburban hometown in the West Midlands, England. Growing up outside of a city gave me the desire to travel, create and look further. With the digital age of photography evolving alongside me – I extended my knowledge and inspiration through social media and online photography communities.

At seventeen, I started my own photography business and soon found myself shooting for portrait clients, book publishers and music labels throughout the UK. However, I was eager to grow as an artist and extend my business internationally, so I moved to London to connect with creatives and to push my boundaries as a photographer.

I am influenced by past and present styles; whenever I shoot I like to create stories with an underlying sense of narrative, whether this is in my personal work, commercial campaigns or editorial projects. I am deeply inspired by elements of influential style, film noir, old masters in painting and photography, Romanticism and untouched beauty. All of my experiences in life thus far have been reflected through my imagery, and continue to shape me personally, and as an artist.

In 2011, I made the move to New York City and this is where I currently reside, dividing my time between the US and Europe for assignments.
