I have had a life-long interest in photography. I completed four years at Art School studying Graphic design to Diploma standard. I gained an Associate membership of the Typographical Society through a competition. I was shortlisted to ten runners up nationally for the Royal Society of Prevention of Accidents (ROSPA) for an art piece. I completed a 4 year combined honors degree in French and Fine Art at Exeter University, UK.
With my French and Fine Art degree I chose to focus on photography and my main final project was on the study of Love and what that means. I gained a first in that final piece, which looked at the love present in different relationships between people. Part of my year abroad I was at Nantes École de Beaux Arts where I completed a dissertation on a comparative study on newspaper journalism. I became very interested in photojournalism. I trained as newspaper photographer at local newspapers for six months and then news and sports agencies.
I gained the industry recognized NCTJ certificate in Press photography in Sheffield, then worked freelance in Press and PR with a small amount of weddings through clients and agencies.
I have been published in The Times, Daily Express amongst other national and local magazines and web news agencies. I am a member of the NUJ and EPUK.
I have a passion for photography and prefer to work in an unobtrusive way. I currently work freelance for press and PR and for the weddings I continue to shoot in a photojournalistic style. I have my own personal photographic projects that I am pursuing which involves nature and animals.
