PHOTOGRAPHY ILLUSTRATION GRAPHIC DESIGN ANIMATION RESUME 3
Pho togra phy Welcome to the photography section of my portfolio. The selection of images puts an emphasis on my editorial photography as I have freelanced for many years as a fashion photographer, shooting new faces from different modelling agencies and producing spreads for online and print publications. However, despite the lacking presence in this selection, I also have a separate body of work
that consists of event, product and fine art photography. I am also the happy owner of a small photo studio located in my flat which is where all of these photographs were taken. For each photoshoot I construct and paint a MDF-board set seeing as I prefer the texture of a painted background instead of coloured paper.

ARTIFI CIAL/ REAL 20
graphic design & illustration I love to draw, and have been fondly scribbling away since I was a child. It was only natural that my passion for illustration developed alongside my photography. I don't believe that choosing one single specialisation and sticking to it for the rest of one's life is for everyone. For me, it's equally important and gratifying to branch out into as many domains as possible. In the end, becoming a better illustrator helps me become a better photographer and vice versa.
I have both designed and illustrated T-shirts, websites, LP covers, magazines, posters, flyers, advertisements, brochures and calenders. I am also currently working on a short graphic novel titled Angry Hands Comic.
VITAMINS x NUMBERS NYE PARTY > STEREO 30
LP covers created for Mia Dora's Hypnotised released by Glasgow based record label: High Sheen.
A diverse selection of sci-fi inspired illustrations.
I was the layout editor of GUM Magazine for one year when I was studying in Glasgow.
I created the illustrations that were featured on the covers, and was in charge of layouting the contents of the magazine.
I was commissioned by the GUSRC to illustrate the front cover and section subdividers of the 2012 issue of the Student Guide. The layout was created by Shaun Murphy.
Left: Here you can see the inner contents of the Student Guide. I self-imposed the theme of insects (as a nod to the cliched poor living conditions of students). Right: I was also commissioned to create a front cover for the student calender. The design was inspired by antique sundials.
In 2012 I launched a Glasgow-based, not-for-profit, hand-stapled zine in collaboration with PHOTOSOC.
Diverse selection of illustrations. 1: "Conquering the Valley" 2: Alternative version of Mia Dora's Hypnotise EP 3: "Relics of the Past"
ANGRY HANDS COMIC 48
Angry Hands Comic is a graphic novel that was started in 2013. The plot revolves around two hands from Glasgow, who don't really know they're hands but think they are something bigger and more complete (kind of like us, really). The only hand in this universe that sees himself and others as they truly are, is unfortunately at the present time a schizophrenic alcoholic.
ANIMA TION & 3-D In the beginning of 2013 I started to expand into 3D graphics and animation. I created a series of lowpoly 3D models which I converted into paper templates and then folded together to form sculptures. I also
created a 2-minute long animation on the theme of "Biomemetics" (which can be seen on the next page).
ANIMATION: HOW MISSILES ARE BORN
ď€ş How Missiles are Born is a 2-minute animation on the theme of Biomemetics. It demonstrates how nature inspires science.
A STOP-MOTION FILM In 2011, I made a short, surrealist, stop-motion animation on the topics of high speed communication, conformity and free speech on the internet. It begins with a man who enters the room and sits down at his dining table. After a brief pause, he spits out his own tongue (he expresses his own opinion on the internet). He becomes unsure whether this was a good idea so he attempts
to retrieve it. But as it often is online: itâ€™s too late. The tongue has already begun itâ€™s journey around the world.
