I am based in Kingston, Jamaica where I document sustainable development and heritage issues and lecture in the Communication Arts & Technology programme at the University of Technology. I hold a MA Photography from the University of Bolton (Dalian) and a B.Sc. in Geography from the University of the West Indies.
Since 2009 I have been a member of the Demotix agency and am a former freelance photographer for Reuters, former photography editor of The Gleaner newspaper and a three-term past president of the Photography Club of Jamaica. I enjoy writing as well as shooting, and have work in several publications including Jamaica: Absolutely (2010); Moods of Jamaica (2004); A Tapestry of Jamaica: The Best of SkyWritings (2003); Guide to the Blue and John Crow Mountains (2008) and Insight Guide: Jamaica (2000).
I have participated in several group exhibitions, including the 2011 international exhibition of sculpture and photography, “In Family Unity – Unity of the World” in Moscow, the 2009 Edna Manley College Faculty Show and the 2002 group exhibition, “Private Thought, Public Spaces” at the Mutual Gallery. In 2002 I was selected as an artist in the “Liquid Light” photography exchange and exhibition between Jamaica and the East Midlands of England.
In 2001 I won a highly commended award in the Commonwealth Photographic Competition and in 2003 won five awards in the 2003 Kodak Professional Caribbean Calendar Contest. I have worked with Frommer’s Travel Guides, The United States Agency for International Development (USAID), The British Council, Picture House Centre for Photography, (Leicester, England), the Environmental Foundation of Jamaica and Jamaica’s National Environment & Planning Agency (NEPA).
