I enjoy creating images, through photography, design, film or drawings. My family and friends are what keep me ticking, photography taking a close second place. I cherish the happy moments in life and get pure joy from my kids when they smile.
I have a degree in media production and feel fortunate I have been able to put them into practice, both professionally and personally. I love photography and cameras, a day spent playing with my camera, or experimenting with a new lens is a great day in my book! I am a geek, camera spec’s interest me.
After working in the art publishing world for almost 5 years and now as a photographer, I am lucky enough to have worked with artists and photographers that inspire and motivate my own ambitions.
I am a 2018 Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize Exhibitor.
