In 2009 I moved to Cornwall to study on the BA(Hons) Press & Editorial Photography course. After graduating, I decided to remain in Falmouth and began working within the Institute of Photography; initially as an intern and now as a technician. I am also studying part-time on the MFA course and continuing to develop my practice.

Research interests and expertise

My current practice is concerned with the use of digital technologies and multimedia within the fields of photography, digital literature and fine art. I am proficient in all aspects of both traditional analogue and digital photographic processes, and I am fully trained in the use of a wide range of specialist photographic equipment. I have spent an extensive amount of time working in our professional print lab, and as such I have a good working knowledge of both c-type and large-format inkjet printing. I have also spent a large amount of time assisting in our studios, helping to run workshops and supervising set-builds. I have a strong experience with the planning, coordinating, curating and production of photographic exhibitions both on and off campus, and would be happy to offer supervision in this area.
