In the summer of 2002 I realised that I was at a photographic crossroads. Landscapes and nature no longer challenged me and I wanted to explore photojournalism. I was participating in the Liquid Light exchange programme in the East Midlands, and so I decided to travel to Malawi to document the food shortages there. This experience confirmed to me that I wanted to pursue photojournalism. Since then I have worked as a staff news photographer, photography editor and freelance photojournalist.
