With a love for the human story and those tiny ordinary moments that make up our day; story telling and documentary photography was a natural place to fall into.
By using photographic narratives, those loves are heightened. Allowing an ability to show the true depth and intimacy of a subject, simply by taking notice of those gentle details that make us up collectively as humans. This is where the good stuff lies- the everyday, the odd and those subtleties that often go unnoticed.
With a combination of trust, a love of natural light and a good strong coffee, stories are told. Whether it's a tiny snippet, a captured moment, or a long reoccurring theme; small stories, tall stories and all the stories in between. Everyone has an evolving one and sometimes they need sharing.
With three young kids, I'm often exploring many of my own emerging stories, however I’d love to hear from you; to find out about your story. If you have one that you would like explored, shared or perhaps have some collaboration/commission ideas, please do get in contact.
