ABOUT GEMMA

I’m a photographer and writer who will 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.

I have 10+ years’ experience working with international NGOs and UK charities.

My main interests are human rights, health, HIV, LGBTQ-related issues, animal welfare, conservation and the environment.

Based between Brighton and Macclesfield, UK.

 

Documentary photographer

I’m particularly interested in long-term documentary projects, collaborating with individuals to share personal stories connected to a social or human rights issue.

 

Work published in:

Guardian, Independent Travel, BBC in photos, Marie Claire, the Metro, 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.”

Rino Pucci. Photographer. Multimedia Producer.

If you’re serious about getting the best stories then I’d love to hear from you.
