Biography

I was born and raised in England, but began my photojournalism career in North America stringing for The Associated Press in Portland, Ore. From there I spent 10-years working as a staff photographer on various daily newspapers in Oregon, Pennsylvania and New Mexico.

I have since traveled through Central America, India and Europe as an independent photographer and have recently returned to the states, basing myself in Oregon.

I earned the Community Awareness Award from the 60th Photographer of the Year International and the Golden Light Award for documentary work and have been nominated for a Pulitzer Prize. In 2010 I had work in the Positive View exhibition at Somerset House in London- http://www.apositiveview.com/ and in the Panda Gallery in New York City, and I currently have work in an exhibit at the Wright Museum of Art in Wisconsin.

My photographs have recently appeared in The Oregonian, The New York Times, Geo Saison, Visual Anthropology Review, People Magazine, MSNBC.com and with Zuma Press.
