Charities

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

15+ years working collaboratively with interviewees, and bringing a fresh approach to charity photography. Ethical comms expert.

 

Social documentary

I work on long-term documentary projects, collaborating with individuals and organisations to share personal stories connected to a social issue relating to human rights, conservation and environment.

 

Work published in:

Guardian, Independent Travel, BBC, Marie Claire, the Metro, Amber Magazine, Shutter Hub, Photomonitor, Zeke magazine…

 

“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.”

Rino Pucci, photographer and multimedia producer.
