About

My fascination with visual images drove me to look for the extraordinary that would need to be captured. Yet in my 13 years as a professional photographer I have found that it is more often found in the ordinary; the real life stories of ordinary people can touch an audience in their beauty and honesty, make them ask questions, or impel them to seek out more information. It is capturing the extraordinary in the ordinary that has led me to travel the world finding the perfect shots for magazines, books, websites and public relations.
Most recently I worked as the official photographer for the United Nations peacekeeping mission in Liberia, West Africa. A country in transition from 20 years of brutal war, but a people filled with bravery, patience and hope for the future.
I have provided photos from some of the remotest regions of the world, from the Pamir mountains in Tajikistan to the rainforests of West Africa, for publications including GEO, CNN traveler, Geographical, Lonely Planet, DAMN magazine and many more. I have worked with non-government organizations and development agencies in some of the poorest parts of the world to put a human face to their statistics and bring project proposals to life.
I have worked commercially in London, Stockholm,Vancouver and New York, where I am now based.
