My Story.

In December 2015 I travelled to the Greek island of Kos and volunteered for one week helping refugees as they crossed the Aegean Sea from Turkey in small rubber boats.

This had such an impact on me that I returned very soon after and continued to follow the refugee trail through Greece to the Macedonian border and the famous refugee camp of Idomeni.

I began to take photographs of the people on my travels which very quickly and fortunately turned into a formidable passion and career. This has since taken me all over the world and allowed me to tell incredible stories of amazing people in their fight for life and their will and struggle to survive.

It is a privilege to be able to share the stories of such incredible people. Stories that better the lives of those who hear them and of people who otherwise may never have a voice.
