Born in England, made in Australia. I grew up in a small coastal town in the South West of England called Sennen Cove in Cornwall. With my feet in the sand and my hands in the ocean, this was where my love for the natural world was ignited. It was in 2018 that I made the life changing decision to relocate to Australia and in 2019, because of the influence of this beautiful country I’m lucky enough to call home, I decided to pick-up a camera and capture all of my experiences.
From my humble beginnings in photography, I have now documented my experiences traveling the world, working and collaborating with tourism boards, airlines, hotels and brands - from diving with tiger sharks in Fiji to scaling the Atlas Mountains in Morocco, I have been fortunate enough to pursue a career that has given me so much joy.
Through my photography, I aim to capture the beauty and raw emotion of the world around us, whether it's the majestic mountains or the stunning ocean with its marine life. I also find inspiration in the stories of the people I meet.
My approach to photography is relaxed, down-to-earth, and organic. I strive to capture real moments and emotions. I want my clients to feel comfortable and at ease knowing I will come away bringing their creative vision to life.
The thing that really separates me from most people is my love for the natural world. I think this connection has made me one of the chillest people you’ll ever meet. Friend’s often say that my quokka resembling smile and calm nature is like a warm blanket being put around you.
My heart finds its happy place beside the ocean, where I feel most alive amidst marine life. I have an immense love for animals and dedicate much of my time beyond weddings to documenting and sharing their captivating stories. Working with tourist boards, publications, and brands, I get to spread tales from the ocean far and wide.
A notable highlight—I proudly earned the title of Ocean Photographer of the Year 2023 in the Conservation category. I also won the Nature Photographer of the Year in the Sony Alpha Awards. These prestigious global competitions pitted me against some of the world's finest photographers, and my win led to exhibiting my work at renowned venues like The Natural History Museum and Tower Bridge in London.
