Documentary photography is a genre that provides a straightforward and accurate representation of people, places, objects and events, and is often used in reportage. From the initial research, visiting locations, talking to people and planning the shots to tell a story, sometimes in a limited number of images, is a process I love.

I am based in London and I travel the UK shooting for a wide range of clients.
