I’m a photographer because…

“I love travelling, meeting new people and discovering the wonders of the world. I take photographs of things that inspire me: friends, family and strangers I meet along the way. I’m also commissioned by The Telegraph, Vogue and brands such as Adidas and Baby G.

Thanks to supportive parents and teachers, I’ve achieved GCSEs, A-levels and a photography degree. Throughout my education I had extra support. Never be afraid to ask for help – it goes a long way and will help you meet your targets.

I’m profoundly deaf and wear a cochlear implant. This has helped me do things I never thought I could, like listening to music in the car, talking on loud photography shoots and dancing in a club. I also use a hearing loop in cinemas and theatres.

I’ve overcome obstacles and accomplished things that most people wouldn’t have thought possible. I’m now on the road to achieving my dream job.”
