I was homeless and sleeping rough in 2007, but through workshops at the homeless charity Crisis, I became interested, first in art, and then in photography. I managed to buy a second hand digital compact very cheaply and began to take photos in earnest.

In 2009 i had a solo exhibition of my work at Clissold House , Stoke Newington, and having acquired a digital slr, also began a photo project for Crisis, photographing award winners for their Changing Lives Programme. I was then asked to take part in a promotion for Positive View, a major photographic exhibition held at Somerset House in London. For this I had some mentoring by Rankin, and then used his studio to photograph the patron of Positive View, Prince William, for the front cover of Hello magazine, which appeared Monday 15 Feb. 2010. With Prince William I also shot one half of a diptych of ourselves - Prince William photographed me for the other half. All prints from the Positive View exhibition were sold at auction at Christies in April 2010. The Diptych raised £24,000 and went to the Birmingham museum of Media. All proceeds raised from the sale went to Crisis UK.

I am now employed running the photographic workshop for Crisis Uk, and I also work as a freelance photographer for other charities in the homeles sector.
