Current Practice & Employment

My current practice based research is the investigation of visual and audio media, in both analogue and digital forms;  with the objective of exploring their potential transferable language and output into alternative expressive forms of art. My primary photographic endeavours are concerned with late photography and the banality found in the urban landscape.

I’m currently working in various HE & FE environments, lecturing and  tutoring in Photography, Visual Communications, Creative Arts & Graphic Design to full-time undergraduates and part-time distant learners. Alongside delivery,  I validate, write and contribute to course material; I lead study and research visits and write educational blog posts.
