17-year-old Sports and Event photographer based in Colchester Essex. I've been taking photos for over Four years now and this love all stemmed from taking photos at my local parkrun. I work all year round taking photos and making content for Colchester Bootcamp, one of the leading outdoor fitness providers in Essex, and continue to support Running Colchester through taking photos of their runners at various sport events encouraging more people to take up the sport. In December 2019 I won an award for my contributions to sport - The "Active Essex Young Sports Volunteer Of The Year."
In 2020 I started learning new aspects of digital content creation, following most events cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Since then I've now found ways to work with businesses on their websites and social media.

July 22nd 2017 was the first time I attended parkrun with my Dad and his camera! parkrun is where it all started for me and I'll be forever grateful for everyone's support each week! Later that Summer I got my own camera for my birthday.
The Colchester Half Marathon 2018 - taking photos for Running Community, Running Colchester. My first event other than parkrun. It was a fantastic day and I continue to take photos for Running Colchester at a Variety of loacl events.
In June 2018 I began working for GB Colchester Bootcamp, which had just opened in the area. They're now one of Colchester's leading outdoor fitness providers. I've had the pleasure of seeing the business grow and I continue to work with Gabriel on a weekly basis helping manage the digital content!
Throughout 2019 I continued to take photos at local sports events volunteering my time for events and charities. In April 2019 I also spent a day with Lee from Happy Days Creative at a Dance Competition taking photos.
In 2019 I won the Active Essex Young Volunteer of the Year. I have a real passion for sports photography and it’s a wonderful feeling to know my photos are encouraging more people in Colchester to be active. It was a fantastic evening celebrating all the achievements from others across the county.
At the beginning of March 2020 I had a great morning with Lee From Happy Days Photography in his Studio learning all the tips and tricks when taking photos in the Studio. Lee Kindly let me use his studio for photos for my GCSE Coursework and really helped me out as although the exams have been cancelled these photos will still go towards my final grade, so it's a good Job I took them when I did.
In September 2020 as life slowly returned to normal after lockdown and after a trial game. I started work as the Club Photographer at Stanway Rovers FC. Unfortunately, though the season was disrupted due to COVID, I'm now looking forward to the upcoming season 2021/22
As coronavirus restrictions eased I began working with Essex Professional Coaching on a weekly basis creating video and photo content for their website & social media working with their great team of coaches across the business.
I continue to work with Colchester Bootcamp and Essex Professional Coaching creating a wide range of digital content. I also continue to take photos at my local parkrun and photographing lots of local events as well as taking photos as Club photographer at Stanway Rovers.
