Anything that crosses my way and strikes my eye may be a subject. So far however my photography has been primarily focused on covering social issues. In the course of my work as a photography coordinator and editor, I have had the chance to work with several different organisations and meet many photographers. An aspect of my experience of using photography as a means to promote social change that I particularly enjoyed was working as part of a small team, giving me the opportunity to know everyone personally and establish good working relationships. Although I am an independent photographer, I believe a group dynamic brings out the best in us and inspires creativity. My successes were largely enabled by recognition that in each case I was working with other individuals, and not simply making the individual effort of running a campaign.
Through this group, I hope to have the opportunity to meet other photographers, encounter new visions, hear about projects, learn, perhaps link up but globally simply participate in creating a dynamic and creative environment for other photographers as well as myself.
Look out for protests, demonstrations and cultural events - you may find some real treasures of texture, color, shape and original subjects that could also benefit to social causes.
Currently working for Amnesty International UK, my photography mainly focuses on social issues but I am genuinely just a shutter addict. I am also the Coordinator and Editor of a small group of photojournalists in London.
