I am a documentary photographer and filmmaker from Horden, Co Durham. I have a degree in Photography and Film from Sunderland University. I work from my studio in Co Durham.
Much of my work focuses on communities in East Durham - pit villages which are often described as ‘marginalised’ communities. Through my extensive work in them I have built up relationships and become trusted, working with communities that are otherwise sceptical of outsiders. I have also documented England's busiest food bank and I've examined issues of migration, alongside refugees and asylum seekers in Stoke and undertaken a project about deindustrialisation in Rochdale.
I create documentaries using both still and moving images and share the work in the communities they're created, either through exhibitions or public screenings. I have produced films supported by leading documentary organisation Amber Films, and worked in collaboration with academics from Manchester Metropolitan and Durham Universities to produce visual anthropologies on post-industrial communities, young people’s mental health problems and ethnicity. I have also collaborated extensively with other artists, arts organisations and charities.
I shoot with 6k cinema cameras and 4k drones. I am available for commissions, editorial work, workshops, commercial projects and private tuition/mentoring.
