I am a freelance news, corporate and commercial photographer living near London. I started out on local newspapers in south London. I then progressed to cover assignments all over the world for The Independent and The Daily Telegraph newspapers. I also worked for Reuters and Getty Images for ten years as Senior News Photographer before joining London News Pictures. My work has been recognised with awards from the ‘Picture Editor’s Awards’. I have also been named News Photographer of The Year by the ‘Press Photographer’s Year Awards’ and was named as Pulitzer finalist for my images of the Arab Spring.
