Leeds Creative Labs Documentation Commission

I’m just editing a film I shot for a primary school in London that demonstrates my proposed approach to Leeds Creative Labs 2019. This two-minute sample documents creative collaboration and thoughtful conversation in a busy learning environment.


I approached it as a documentary photographer but took care to set up as many interviews as possible with parents and teachers.

What they told me about the school’s standards, objectives and benefits gave meaning to the pictures and has been the foundation of the edit.

The quality of photography is important to me, as are the moments captured. I enjoy how they work in the edit with the stories I have.

The 2019 Creative Labs is a great opportunity to build on my recent experience and I really hope to make the films that tell the story.
