I am a professional photographer based in Essex, UK. I specialise in working with creatives and have worked on commissions with Firstsite, The Goldsmiths' CompanyThe Charles Dickens Museum, Gunnersbury Park MuseumContemporary Applied Arts gallery and The English Garden magazine. I have a background in picture libraries, having worked at The Museum of the Home prior to going freelance. This experience gives me an understanding of the very unique needs of museums and the importance of delivering strong collections of images to all my clients, ensuring they have impactful images they can use widely. I offer a range of services from discreet documentary/reportage photography, exhibition installation, architectural, interiors and object photography.


I am also Projects Director at Shutter Hub, an organisation providing opportunities, support and networking for creative photographers worldwide, where I coordinate and produce exhibitions including our annual YEARBOOK project, overseeing our content creation and developing our publishing house, Shutter Hub Editions.


I like making zines, going to gigs, watching TV boxsets and being by the sea.
