Documentary and editorial photographer based in Derbyshire.
My practice is built on being in the present, immersing myself within an environment. A form of mindfulness that is beneficial to personal well-being and allows raw experience, emotion and atmosphere to be captured. I seek patterns and structure, making connections between people and place to create depth in my images. This depth often materialises through story-telling, with great value placed on research and contextually appropriate representation.
Consistent elements throughout my work are collaboration and experimenting with media beyond photography. Different perspectives are invaluable, and to create instinctively and recreationally provides a body of work that engages both creator and audience.
