I currently works as a freelance photographer and part time photography assistant in a studio based in Sheffield. My style of photography is mostly documentary: observing and capturing everyday life, people, places and events through my lens. I come from a fine art background which led me into photography during my A-levels.

To date my work has been exhibited at Bank Street Arts (Sheffield) in a group exhibition, 'Witness' (2013) with this series I looked at individuals who have witnessed events that required human aid or intervention. I also created a newspaper entitled 'Girls on Film' that looked into the objectification and sexualisation of women within music video’s, this was displayed at 'Discover' (2013) a group book exhibition held at Cantor Atrium. My current book 'Kayleigh' was exhibited at the SIA degree show in Sheffield during June 2014.
