A 25 yr old, videographer and photographer based in the South of England. Previous work experience includes working with a range of media companies; What's happening magazine, 4AD, LYT production company, Beggars Group and Magic Memories Photography.

I’m a “people person” and like to capture narrative and personalities through the lens of a camera that the naked eye cannot always see. I have had a passion for photography and filmmaking from the early age of eight, whether it was in front of the camera, vlogging or looking through the lens. I was always interested in some way or another. My ambition is to produce exquisite cinematography for interesting people or for their special day.

In photography, I have had professional experience in photographing large groups of tourists, editing and distributing photos for sales in the while working at touristic attractions; Brighton Wheel, London Zoo and the British Airways i360. This line of work taught me how to work hands on with the subject(s), direct them and then edit the final product ready for purchase. I also have experience in fashion photography and filming ‘behind the scene’ documentaries for local magazines collaborating with high street brands like Doc Martens.

In videography, I have an extensive portfolio of a range of cinematography styles; documentary production, short-films, live band sessions/performances. I also have experience in working in live television, working as a director, producer and vision mixer/editor.

 

Whether it’s photography or video, I strive to create a relationship between the subject and the viewer through the use of the lens, no matter style or format to produce something unique and original.

The skills I have learned from ongoing work experience combined with various training has fuelled my aspirations to become an freelance Media Producer. whilst networking and growing maintaining a clear vision to complete my BA Television & Digital Media course.
