About me

I started out working in TV as a promo director, cutting my teeth directing 30 second on-air promos for MTV.

I've always loved the atmosphere of being on set and took the long filming days as the perfect opportunities to document the process through photography.

Fast forward a few years and I left TV, (and directing) behind and moved into advertising as half of a creative team with partner Tom Evans

Making TV commercials meant being on a lot more sets, which in turn gave me more interesting stuff to shoot.     

After a while it became natural for me to shoot on-set stills for our bigger TV campaigns.

I now split my time between freelancing with Tom as a creative team and capturing interesting on-set photography for ad agencies and filmmakers.
