Storyteller • Filmmaker • Photographer
I inquisitively love to tell character-led stories through film and photography, on a variety of topics, such as women’s lives, human rights and climate change. Throughout my career I’ve worked alongside some inspiring charities, organisations and production companies including WaterAid, Greenpeace & Method. I’ve adapted to each brief which has seen me multitasking as a producer/director, editor and self-shooting camera woman and photographer. And due to the ever changing industry, it’s meant I have turned my hand to multiple other complimentary roles including research and idea development, co-ordinating film festivals, case study gathering and distribution producing. I’m a curious storyteller, continuously inspired by humans and nature. Multimedia content has the power to tell the most important stories of our time. My work aims to allow people to open their minds and connect to a story, cause or way of life. I specialise in finding the best medium to tell stories and bring them to life through film or photography to raise awareness and engage audiences.
I have all my own equipment including; Sony A7Sii camera + lenses with all the accessories, as well as an editing suite with iMac and Adobe Creative Suite. I'm also happy to hire equipment, depending on the specifics of the project.
Commissions and collaborations welcome, please get in touch.

'I've worked with Isabelle for a number of years and on a range of projects, from quick turn around short films and multimedia documentary projects, to distribution and measuring impact of Virtual Reality. Isabelle is passionate, hard working, creative and fun to collaborate with. She has attention to detail and wants to ensure each project is the best it can be.
Her skills are broad which is fantastic as she has the ability to plan and produce a project from conception though to distribution, but in addition she can also film, edit and take photographs to a high level. Isabelle is interested in telling human stories that make an impact and her ability to build rapport with people quickly is an asset in producing this kind of content.'
Catherine Rose, Director and Producer
'Isabelle has brought her genial personality and distinctive visual style to WaterAid projects for the last five years - both in the UK and internationally. She’s naturally drawn to people and has a rare ability to connect and tell their stories with a poetic eye. Whether it's shooting, editing, producing or directing, it's great to have Isabelle on board. A very talented filmmaker.'

'Isabelle was a delight to work with on for our slow fashion store pop up event. She’s got a great knack for capturing really lovely little moments that most people wouldn’t pick up on! Additionally she got the footage to us super speedily after the event which was brilliant. Would highly recommend.'
