Photography that makes a difference

See your life, work and world differently. Tell your story.


Look Again brings together my love of photography with over 20 years’ experience of community and business development in London, Africa and Bristol. I run photography workshops, talks and exhibitions, undertake commissions and publish books.

Look Again uses photography as a tool to bring about personal, community and business development. I work alongside national and local organisations as well as individuals, with a focus on photography for health and wellbeing, schools, communities, and ethical businesses and organisations.

Recent clients include the National Trust, Green Party, Eden Project, Cotswold Conservation Board, Crisis and an NHS trust.

Look Again is run on strong principles and shares your vision for a greener, fairer and happier world.

I am based in Stroud, and work mostly in Gloucestershire (Gloucester, Cheltenham and the Cotswolds) as well as in Bristol and other parts of the south-west.

I would love to look again with you and help you tell your story.

New book: Ecolibrium Now

I am delighted that a photograph I took three years ago when working with the National Trust , features on the front cover of this beautiful and inspiring new book Ecolibrium Now –  a book by artists, writers, poets, farmers, and others who support the creation of a new international law to protect nature from Ecocide.

New: Echo Chamber, an Art and Photography Project Celebrating Conscientious Objectors

I am honoured to have been asked to take part in this project, which has been commissioned by the Quakers Britain and Quaker Artist Network and funded by the Arts Council of England. Echo Chamber celebrates 100 years of legal recognition to individual conscience.

Look Again is facilitating the photographic element of the work and are seeking project participants NOW who have links to conscientious objectors (COs). We are looking for 100 individuals around the UK who have a strong personal connection and a photograph of a CO. The outcome of the work will form part of a wider exhibition at ‘The Light’ at Friends House in London during August 2016. This is going to be BIG! See here for more info and how to participate.
