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.

Throughout the past two years, my photographic work has been centred almost entirely around researching and documenting the root causes and impacts of increasing knife crime statistics across the UK.
