I need three things in this world: my camera, my notebook, my audio recorder.

I live to tell compelling stories that elevate underreported issues around human rights, social justice and the environment.

Originally from Devon, England, I'm based between Vancouver, BC, and London, UK.

I'm a National Geographic Explorer. My current Storyteller project is investigating the social and ecological impacts of wild salmon decline in the Pacific Northwest.

My photography and writing has been published widely, in publications including The Guardian and the Sunday Times Magazine. In 2019, my personal project The Dark Figure*, an investigation which documented UK neighbourhoods affected by modern-day slavery, was published as a book by Another Place Press.

In 2017, I was PhotoVoice's winner for my collaboration with 12-year-old Alfred living with Asperger's syndrome. Alfred and I created a short documentary video In A Sense, about his experiences living with Asperger's. The same project won the opportunity to be exhibited with Faces in Focus in London, and received an honourable mention at the 2017 International Photo Awards.

In 2015, I graduated from Press and Editorial Photography at Falmouth University, UK.

If you have a story to tell that requires sensitivity and compassion, I'd love to hear from you.
