This image was taken for Tintz' relaunch. After losing his social media accounts to hackers, he lost all of his content, so we worked together to create some new images which well represented him, to go alongside his music.

Litty & friends

Litty is a young successful artist, and has a studio in Shadwell where he works to record not only his own music, but helps other young artists. Here i photographed him and his friends hanging out, outside their local shop nearby the studio.


This image is a photograph of Frankie in the area she grew up, here she's sitting at her local bus stop. I wanted to photograph her naturally and less posed. This shoot was important for me, as i wanted to work with a female grime artist, as grime is such a male dominated scene.

Patta editorial

I worked together on this shoot for clothing brand Patta, shooting Oscar, an upcoming artist from Tottenham. I understand the connection and relevance music and fashion have together, so this was an exciting shoot for me.


Here I photographed Discarda on the estate he grew up on. He wanted to come across strong in the images, so i centred him within the frame and shot him from a lower angle.
