Life and work[edit]

Meredith grew up in Folkestone, and currently lives in Brighton. He has been photographing since 1996,[3] when he was 16.[4]

He first became known for his photography around Brighton, England and for his use of social networking as a tool to promote his photography,[4][5][6] specifically Flickr.[7][8]

His portrait montages appeared in the monthly Brighton Source magazine for four years.[9] He teaches monthly photography courses using the Lomo-LCA,[1][10][11] gives talks at venues internationally and undertakes commercial photography work.[12]
