About

About Me

I am an independent and driven photographer based in the South West of England, specialising in documentary and portrait photography. I shoot primarily on medium format film, opting to utilise the process as much as possible. 

For the past 2 years, my work has been centred almost entirely around researching and documenting the causes and effects of knife crime in the UK.
