Teaching Projects

‘Wembley to Soweto’

‘Wembley to Soweto’ has been one of the most rewarding projects I’ve ever worked on. The aim of the project was – and still is – to teach disadvantaged young people how to feed their families with their cameras.


In March 2005 I was invited by the Department of International Development (DFID) to run a photography project on the Caribbean island of Montserrat.

Shortly after moving to the UK, I was asked by the late Fred Cook at the London College of Printing to join the newly created “Practices in Professional Photography”, a non-degree course for students who wanted to learn how to work as professionals.
