    About me

    I am a full-time freelance cinematographer and stills photographer based in South London, having worked as a portrait and events photographer since I was at school. My work has been featured in both print and online media, on the following publications: Croydon Advertiser, BFI (Twitter), BFI Future Film (FB, Twitter), Apogee (FB).

    My passion is cinema - I have focused on gaining experience in independent shorts as well as supporting festivals, and seeing my work on the big screen is one of the most inspiring experiences a young filmmaker can have. I hope to obtain more work with professional productions as a Camera Trainee in the near future.
