Life and work
Meredith grew up in Folkestone, and currently lives in Brighton. He has been photographing since 1996, when he was 16.
He first became known for his photography around Brighton, England and for his use of social networking as a tool to promote his photography, specifically Flickr.
Meredith's photographs have been exhibited in solo shows. He has had his illustrated guides to photography techniques published, as well as a small book of his own photography. His portrait montages appeared in the monthly Brighton Source magazine for four years. He teaches monthly photography courses using the Lomo-LCA, gives talks at venues internationally and undertakes commercial photography work.
