Hi, I’m a Director of Photography (DP) and Photographer based in Dubai and the UK.
I shoot content across the globe, using real-life references and analogue still photography to inform my image making. I constantly strive to create the richest, most organic images that tell the story.
I’ve shot for major broadcasters like Discovery, Netflix and ITV as well as numerous brands, governments and NGOs. I've worked at 4000m altitude in the Himalayas, with street children in Sao Paolo, scientists in Malawi and covid ICU wards in Dubai.
I’m here to shoot.
