Telling stories through pictures


I'm an award-winning filmmaker and photographer and I've been making films and capturing photo stories for 20 years. 


With a background in documentary, investigative and creative filmmaking and photography, my work has taken me across the UK and the world. I've worked on a whole range of projects, both documentary and commercial, with a particular interest in stories that focus on society, environment, women, human rights, migration and supply chains. A number of my films have had a direct impact on policy change - something I'm really proud of. 

More recently, I've also started also working with brands and makers in the UK, capturing portraits, process and location.

My work is broad but it all has a common thread running through it - people. The thing that I treasure the most about my work is meeting people and having the privilege to tell their story through pictures and words.

I'm as happy with my camera up a mountain, in the middle of the ocean or a jungle, in the backstreets of a heaving foreign city as I am in the quiet of a person's home, a field or a studio. 

My work has been published in numerous magazine, newspapers and websites and shown on The Guardian, Stylist, Oceanographic Magazine, Conde Nast Traveller, Positive News, BBC, Al Jazeera, the HuffPost, the BBC, Spanish national TV, London Fashion Week, at the US State Department, a number of high profile UN and international meetings and at exhibitions and film festivals.

I did my Foundation Studies and BA at Camberwell College of Arts and I have a Masters degree in Documentary Practice. I've travelled widely, worked in 35 countries to date and lived in a number of European cities. These days, I live between the Highlands in Scotland and North Essex with my family where you'll find me jumping into the sea or estuary at least once a week. 

I'll be releasing my first feature documentary, X Trillion, in 2022 (

I'm in fluent in French, speak good conversational Spanish.

I'm an Association of Photographers (AOP) member and a United Nations accredited photographer. I also contribute to Exposure picture library:
