Drew’s reputation grew and his talent for photography grew into a career in video directing, working with major brands and large production companies. Drew’s worked on adverts featuring David Beckham, Chanel and Omega watches.

Music-wise, Drew has worked with international stars like Fatmanscoop, Ty Dollar $ign, Enter Shikari, Texas and many more, with his work airing on many music TV channels regularly, including MTV, Kerrang! and Scuzz.
Drew’s latest project is ‘5 Questions’ - conversations with various artists speaking about inspiring subjects, revealing a more intimate side. MOBO award winner Kobi Onyame is amongst the artists interviewed for the project and ‘5 Questions’ proves that if Drew is anything, he’s certainly not a one trick pony.
