Based in Lusaka, Zambia, I record everyday life here, as well as personal and cultural highlights of the year. My growing archive of Zambian images is available for licensing – and if you would like to order prints, they can be delivered worldwide. Please contact me for further information.

When I lived in the United Kingdom, most of my images were shot on 35mm black and white film, for greeting cards and personal projects. Increasingly, I now use digital cameras and most of my work is in colour.

My pictures have appeared in group exhibitions in London, the USA and online. Highlights include:

-Photomonth, London, at Rich Mix in 2012 and 2014 : featuring my street photography and ‘Town Dogs’ project.

-iPhoneography, SE Center for Photography, South Carolina, USA, March 2018.

-Shutter Hub Everyday Delight (Stay at Home Edition) 2020.

-Postcards from Great Britain, 2020, from which my image ‘Mind the Gap’ was chosen for printing by Shutter Hub.

I am available for commissions. The best way to contact me initially is by email.
