About me

I am a documentary photographer with a passion for work that highlights social justice issues.

Throughout my career, I've specialised in disability equality and activism. My lived experience as a deaf woman and a survivor of domestic abuse shapes my approach to working with people. I seek to engage with marginalised groups to produce work that is authentic and empowers those I work with.

I found my niche documenting election campaigns across Wales and my experience includes political and trade union campaign coverage, community participatory work and project management involving diverse communities.

A career highlight was documenting the work of the UK delegation of disabled people’s representatives at the UN in Geneva in 2017, where they submitted evidence of the UK Government’s human rights violations against disabled people.

My portfolio is wide-ranging and includes campaigns, events, awards ceremonies, PR and editorial work. I am based in Cardiff, Wales, and open for commissions and projects all over Wales, the UK and beyond.
