I partner with brands to produce meaningful, considered stories.

I'm an experienced producer and freelance BA (doc) photographer based in Amsterdam, working with global brands throughout the UK and Europe . I work collaboratively with creative teams to produce internal and external story-driven content from inception through to publication. 

Focused, involved and able to dial up the knowledge and appropriate skills to perform as a strong player on any given project. This energy is central to my work ethic and the delivery of engaging visual content.

I initiated my career in the visual arts before moving into design and production for a leading, London-based trends, brand strategy and consumer research agency. I continue to draw from this experience when producing story-driven content for brands.

Clients include – adidas, ABN Amro, The BBC, Philips, The Co-operative Society, Kate Spade NY, The Ministry of Defence (NL) and The Greater London Authority.

Recent work

It was a pleasure working with Stacey on our Talent Acquisition project. She’s a true visionary and is great to bounce ideas with. She introduced a new style of strong, storytelling through her photographic approach that has really enhanced the Philips brand. I can highly recommend Stacey, she’s not only a very talented individual but her professionalism, passion and enthusiasm for the project made the experience highly enjoyable. I look forward to work with Stacey again on future projects!

Working with Stacey was an incredible joyride through ideas and their realisation. Many creatives quickly fall into closed working practices or think more about their own place in the creative process, rather than finding ways to indulge yours. I brought some complicated ideas and ideals to Stacey and not only did she help me evolve them into refined artefacts at the conceptual stage, she helped me add dimension, time and place - all of this was before she even considered where her own place in the material realisation would be. Stacey works very hard to understand what you’re trying to achieve and how the end user will receive the message. My rough ideas completely changed over the course of some very productive conversations and then Stacey laid a very clear route to realising the eventual plan. I felt indugled, included and involved and I didn’t ever have to force my way into the development or realisation of a process, Stacey kept me in the front row of everything. Stacey’s photography also has a passion wrapped into it that’s palpable. Every brand has human ideals behind it, but most don’t enjoy it’s proper communication - Stacey will make sure it’s in the DNA of everything she does for you. Stacey helped me tell the story I really wanted to tell using countless subtle semantics. Everything was considered.
Stacey’s amazing. Make sure you involve her from the start - and let her lead you all the way through to the end. You won’t be disappointed, moreover, you’ll consider paying her double the asking price.

I have worked with Stacey on a diverse range of multimedia projects over the years, including a number of films and videos, and other projects more focussed on still imagery and graphic design.
Each project has been different but the unique quality that Stacey has always added to the process has been the ability to truly get to the heart of what I need, understand the brief and then provide the creative direction to get a successful end result. Unlike many creatives I have worked with she doesn’t push a creative direction just because she believes its a great creative idea. She tries and succeeds in truly understanding what your objectives are, including the appropriate tone of voice, understanding the pace, energy and emotions you are trying to convey either to, within or about your audience.
I’ve never been disappointed with the end result, and neither have my clients, including many senior execs at the likes of Unilever, and that speaks volumes to Stacey’s vision, ideas and creative direction.
