With a background in photography and journalism, I live to tell compelling stories that elevate issues around human rights, social justice and the environment.

Originally from the UK, I live in North Vancouver on the unceded territories of the Coast Salish Peoples, in particular the Skwxwíº7mesh (Squamish), s?lilw?ta?? (Tsleil-Waututh) and xwm?θkw?í½?m (Musqueam) Nations.  

I'm a National Geographic Explorer for storytelling. Current projects investigate issues around salmon decline and the criminalization of Indigenous fishers in the Salish Sea.

My photography and writing has been published widely, in publications including The GuardianThe NarwhalThe Tyee and the National Observer. I work regularly with NGOs including Save the Children, Stop the Traffik and Greenpeace. 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 and was exhibited in a solo exhibition at the Open Eye Gallery, Liverpool.

In 2016, I graduated from Press and Editorial Photography at Falmouth University, UK.

If you have a human rights or environment story that requires sensitivity and compassion, I'd love to hear from you.
