About

Welcome to my site! I am a photographer based in Cape Town. I was born in England but grew up in South Africa and after university went to live in New York for 5 years and London for 12 years. While in London, I studied photography at the London College of Printing and began my professional career taking on-set photographs in the television industry. In 2006 I returned to South Africa and since then have worked as a photographer for a range of local and international publications and private clients shooting portraiture, street style fashion and interiors.

My career is a crazy blend of my own obsessions and commissions from great clients, and sometimes the line blurs. That’s the perfect moment, when both the client and myself are so in synch that we are obsessing over the same thing.

I am inspired by the vibrancy of the street life I come across daily in South Africa and a few years ago I began shooting street style photographs of fashion, graphics and street art as a personal project while I travelled the country on assignment. These photographs were published in 2012 as a collection called “Sharp Sharp” which looks at great style on the streets of Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town.

I also use my images on a range of products and have designed tableware, fabrics and other products for some of South Africa’s leading retailers.
