For the past six years, I have worked as a fashion and art photographer, freelance magazine editor and i am the founder of PROJECT TEN ORGANISATION - working on the business of IMAGE; publishing, fashion, art, casting, development and travel - books, zines, mags and downloads. In publishing i am probably best known for being the editor-in-chief of Client Magazine, a leading independent British menswear magazine, a role i have held since 2010 to present day.


Over the past six years i have overseen and published over 70 magazines, books, printed zines and digital editions, featuring both emerging and world-class photographers, stylists and models. I have also developed and operate several fashion and art websites and multiple social-media platforms. On a day to day basis, i produce rich content for all of these projects, whether that be via photography, production, casting, graphic design and art direction. I love music, art and fashion and describe myself as a hard-worker and a creator. I was self-taught and I like to create things, from scratch, with what’s at hand. I love projects i can get passionate about. I am very selective about the people i work and associate with and prefer to accept work by referral. But i don't bite, so feel free to get in touch.


As a photographer, my approach is very creative and open-minded and i like to experiment with primitive methods. Natural and alternative light sources are preferred but if you look through my work, i have no creative bias.


I do all the post-production on my own work, which i feel is part of the process. I also oversee all the casting for the magazines at PROJECT TEN and have scouted a number of successfully signed models. Originality, integrity and a strong work ethic are very important to me.
