I began my career working as a fashion photographer. It quickly opened up opportunities in the music industry, first as a photographer and then as a video director working with high profile artists like Texas, Lamb, Jakarta, Seal and Garbage.

My talent for filming women in beautiful, sensuous, natural ways was then embraced by the fashion industry. I was commissioned to make a short film showcasing Katharine Hamnett's Summer collection. From there commercial opportunities arose. I really enjoy moving between the worlds of photography, music video and advertising, where, in recent years, I has been working on campaigns for international brands including De Beers, Special K, Veet and Scholl. 

I amongst all this, I have continued my work in fine art photography and recently completed a postgrad at Central St Martins. My portraits were described as "beautiful, intimate, emotional" and I proudly obtained a distinction.
