I am an award-winning freelance art director and shoot producer, specialising in photography for film and television publicity and advertising. I have many years of experience working on projects large and small, in the UK, Europe and the USA.
I did an art & design degree in London at the end of the nineties and have been lucky enough to work in the British media ever since. I started my career on women’s fashion glossy, Eve and many magazine jobs followed with highlights being time spent on Esquire, GQ, Cosmo and Coast. Such major differences in style and approach but they all had something I loved.
Around twelve years ago an opportunity arose to go back and work for BBC Worldwide, not in magazines this time, but in the international advertising end of programme making. There I got to create and art direct the photographic briefs on many of the UK’s top drama, comedy and natural history programmes such as Sherlock, Upstairs Downstairs, Human Planet, Frozen Planet and many more. After five years there I moved inhouse to the BBC and worked for their in house ad agency, BBC Creative, doing much the same. On a daily basis I dreamed up campaign briefs, commissioned, directed and produced publicity photography and acted as a creative consultant on a wide range of inspiring BBC TV and radio programmes. I also managed high profile red carpet and live event photography.
In 2018 I decided it was finally time to go freelance again!
