Personal profile


I am Course Leader on BA (Hons) Photography, joining the University of Huddersfield in January 2015. My early career as a freelance photographer was predominantly in the music industry, producing photographs for sleeve artwork and promotional images for publication. I returned to education in 2011 to attend the MA in Photography at the London College of Communication, successfully completing late 2012, and since has been making, exhibiting and publishing new work. In my role as Course leader, I am dedicated to continue building the quality and relevance of the photography course, and the range of opportunities we can offer to our students. I am currently working on a practice-based PhD here at Huddersfield University which is providing excellent opportunities to build individual and group research interests and profile in the subject of Photography.
