I LOVE PHOTOGRAPHY
I studied graphic design and constructed textiles, but a love of photography always took over. My first job was in a small design agency assisting the designers where I was soon producing and styling large photoshoots.
For 4 years, I produced shoots and researched imagery for The Guardian & Observer sponsored and branded content across all print and online platforms.
I have been freelance since 2014 - working regularly at the Guardian & the Observer (editorial) and since 2015 have been the picture editor on the Cook supplement (now called Feast) which has included art directing & prop styling several food shoots a month.
I have commissioned photographers and video worldwide, still life, food and fashion stylists, make-up artists and models; recced and chosen locations and art directed shoots from initial ideas to conclusion for a wide variety of international brands.
Alongside working at the Guardian, I regularly prop style on food shoots for commercial clients (Liam Charles Cheeky Bakes cookbook, Trullo cookbook, Waitrose & various advertorials) as well as general shoot production (including social media campaigns and a website launch).
