Joladé (joh-la-day) is a freelance artist, writer, director and photographer based in London.

passionate about people, community building and storytelling, Joladé uses his mediums in the world of art, commercial, editorial and corporate to bring feeling where there is none.

he considers himself a 'fly on the wall' preferring to capture people and the world around him as candidly possible because he sees the beauty in the 'real'.

when he's not doing work for others, he is often traveling for stories he wants to tell, working as a charity trustee, facilitating creative workshops or performing his civic duty as a professional french toast connoisseur (enquire within).
