I have been working as a photographer since graduating in 1995. My commercial practice has included working with monthly magazines such as Esquire and Empire to the weekly supplements of The Times, The Sunday Times and You Magazine. I have had personal, non-commissioned photographic series published on 3 occasions by The Independent. I have also photographed national, international and worldwide advertising campaigns for some of the top London Adverstising Agencies including Leo Burnett, Bartle Bogle Hegarty, Publicis and the Ogilvy Group. Work from my personal practice is exhibited regularly and has twice been shown by the National Portrait Gallery. The Photographers Gallery have shown a selection from my series,’Divided to the Ocean’ as well as commissioning a portrait for their Olympic project ‘The World in London’. I am a member of The Association of Photographers and Photofusion and take an active part in the Uncertain States photography collective and the Platforma Group of artists.
