My work as a digital commercial photographer has been vital in informing my teaching practice as well as keeping me updated with industry trends.
I have a broad spectrum of clients including Channel 4 and Greenpeace and many years experience in the photography industry. These provide an invaluable tool for motivating students and providing an insight into what it takes to become a professional photographer.
My working life preceding digital stills photography was in broadcasting working for the BBC and Sky drama. I believe that multi-media expertise has become ever more necessary in the digital industries which increases the need for students to attain these skills for their working future.
I aim for a communicative method of teaching students that is inclusive and inspires students to experiment and stretch themselves. This along with a firm technical base gives our students an edge in a demanding industry. I also speak Italian and have close connections with Italian film and documentary makers.
