I’m a UK-based photographer with a head full of dreams and a freezer full of film.
I started taking pictures of friends, music and skateboarding in my teens, developing a love for the warmth and magic of analogue/film photography that has stuck with me ever since. After an over-education in English Literature and History of Art at Goldsmiths and the Courtauld, I worked as a photo assistant for David Montgomery. We shot everything from Hello! features to Sunday Times portraits to really shiny pedal bins – a life-changing, practical crash-course that has given me the confidence to approach a wide variety of commissions in my own career.
In 2011, David and I ran the first Guardian Masterclass, and later I devised another course for the Guardian, presented with photographer Gareth McConnell, focussed on learning/stealing from art photography. Since then I’ve been chipping away at winning the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize (so far unsuccessfully), buying and selling and then re-buying at an inflated cost medium and large format cameras, and shooting everything from celebrity weddings to National Trust-endorsed rock bands.
This site is a mix of self-initiated and commissioned work – probably about 60/40. I like working with people in places, places without people, staged portraits, snatched portraits, druids, pigs, musicians and misty landscapes, amongst other things. I’d probably enjoy working with you too – please get in touch if you have a project in mind.
