My background is in newspapers but I’m now also trying to use photography and audio to tell stories in a different way.
I worked for several regional newspapers before going freelance in 2006. I took up photography a few years later and now supply features, images and multimedia to a range of clients, as well as regularly editing The Big Issue in the North. In addition to my editorial work, I sometimes work on arts commissions and participatory projects with young or marginalised people.
I have a degree in European studies and French from the University of Manchester and did my NCTJ newspaper journalism training at the University of Central Lancashire. In 2011 I completed an MA in photojournalism and documentary photography through the London College of Communication, graduating with distinction.
