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.
