Ethical film,

photography & design. 

In 2015, after more than a decade working in TV & Film, life events proved to be a catalyst that inspired me to work exclusively with ethical organizations and non-profits - and strive to produce work that has a genuine social impact. 

Since this shift in creative focus I have worked around the world with incredible people and projects covering a diverse but highly interconnected range of social and environmental issues including healthcare initiatives in Indonesia, Ghana, USA & Ireland; social movements & education in India; conservation in Iceland & Thailand; child slavery and exploitation in Vietnam; disability, AIDS & albinism in Uganda; philanthropy in Brazil; mental health & refugee action in the UK and Europe.

Last year I was awarded Portrait Photographer of the Year by the Paris Photo Prize for my work with the Africa Advocacy Foundation and received a SABRE Award for best use of photography in a public relations campaign for my work with the Nobody Left Outside initiative. My work has been exhibited and screened in London, Paris, Bangkok, and at the European Health Forum in Gastein, Austria.
