NGO photographer

I’ll make your important issues into memorable stories. Working with me means you get your expert interviewer, writer and photographer all-in-one.

I work collaboratively with interviewees and bring a fresh approach to charity photography.

Guardian, Independent Travel, BBC in photos, Marie Claire, the Metro, Amber Magazine, Shutter Hub, Photomonitor, Zeke magazine and more.

 

“Gemma and I worked together on a multimedia production abroad. Driven and energetic, with a proactive ‘get things done’ attitude, Gemma knows exactly what team effort means.

Her ability to connect with all those involved within the production process was a rare and refreshing find. She is a real pleasure to work with.”
