Creating atmosphere is my thing. Alongside eating, I'm forever chasing good light - whatever it takes for that perfect shot!

I am a food photographer and digital retoucher with a 1st class degree in Commercial Photography. Channelling my great passion for food with my creative skillset; I specialise in producing engaging imagery for editorial and commercial clients in London, Buckinghamshire and worldwide. My work has been featured in Time Out magazine, Essex magazine and the BBC; and I was awarded winner of the 'Food for Sale' category in the Food Photographer of the Year Awards in 2019.

I’m a strong believer in presenting food in all its natural glory, striking the right balance between simplicity and playfulness.

My goal is to share my excitement of food using pops of vibrant colour and movement, using a narrative style to capture not just my subject's beauty but its story, and the emotional connection we share with it. I pride myself on offering a personal and passionate service to my clients that focuses on bringing freshness and life to their products through this style, but in a way that is unique to their brand.
