About

 

I am an East London-based beverage and still life photographer.

I have been a writer, brand strategist, academic and bartender.

Besides my (mostly professional) obsession with cold martinis and fully exploring the physics and art of how best to portray them visually, I am a total nerd for aesthetic trends and cultural patterns, notions of narrative power, and the body as a site for performance and expression.

When not shooting, I often speak about all of these, as well as trends within broader drinking culture and drink imagery (in advertising or social media, for example). I also lead regular workshops for the beverage industry, focusing on photographic basics and practical techniques for Instagram, etc.

To date, I have photographed 10 food and drink books, including Tony Conigliaro's Drinks & 69 Colebrooke Row, Tristan Stephenson's epic Curious Bartender series, the Twin Peaks cookbook Damn Fine Cherry Pie, and the Experimental Cocktail Club's eponymous volume.

If you have an interesting, exciting or challenging project, please do get in touch.
