I have a BA Hons in Fine Art from University College Falmouth, in Cornwall and recently completed an MA in photographic practices at Manchester Metropolitan University. In my time as a freelancer, I've honed my own unique style through experience and learning about photography not only commercially but as a contemporary art form. I also have extensive experience as a tutor and a photographic writer.
I love the people, the social aspect and the fact that no day is different. I could be travelling to a restaurant in Chester, shooting in the studio in the city centre or spending s night in a hotel in Surrey ahead of shooting it's new refurb the next morning. You're always learning with photography, particularly as technologies advance, and I love that. I'm never bored.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I couldn't even begin to list all the shoots I've done in the past but the ones that stand out are shoots I've completed for the likes of Manchester City, Hotel Football and The Palace Theatre. These were really quite amazing spaces to shoot and film. I also shot for Arla foods, with Paralympian swimmer Claire Cashmore, which was a real highlight for me. I've done countless gig shoots and been honoured to get repeat work with some of the best restaurants in Manchester and beyond.

A fun fact about this photographer
I sang in a band for 7 years and got absolutely nowhere with it. But I loved it and have played guitar most of my life!
