Biography

For the past eight years I have organised and led highly successful trips to Shanghai, China and Vancouver working with other professionally orientated photographic courses and major international brands such as Superdry UK, Converse China, Specialized USA and Lululemon Canada. It’s an un-missable experience, creating opportunities that are teaching and CV gold, as well as being brilliant fun. My own research and practice is also receiving recognition and three images from my current ‘Ocean Edge’ project have been shortlisted and exhibited in the Environmental Photographer of the Year Awards.
