After studying my BA in Film and Television Production at ARU, I then went on to study for a Masters degree in Filmmaking at the Met Film School in Ealing Studios. Since then, I've worked as a photographer and filmmaker for companies such as @GettyImages, @PrideinLondon, AKT @aktcharity, The Diner, Polette, @CambridgePride and @BossaStudios. My photography work has been featured in @the.independent, The @evening.standard, @TimeOutLondon, Mail Online and @GayTimes whilst my film work has been screened at various UK and international film festivals, earning me a Best Director nomination for my work on the web-series “Support Acts” at UK Web Fest. In 2020, I was shortlisted for the Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year Award and won the Love in London Photography award. In September 2019, I set up a photography and film business, DoodleBug Images Ltd., and have been capturing everything from drinks to drag queens on a variety of large-scale projects since."
