For a long time now I’ve loved having a camera in my hand and documenting peoples stories.
I get excited about capturing the spontaneous and significant moments that make up our lives, moments that can’t be rewound or paused. But I’m also fascinated by the relationships and interactions we have with each other, which is why I’ve always preferred taking natural, honest images that are a reflection of our real selves.
A big part of my life are the trips I take abroad with my camera, as I love exploring new countries, embracing new cultures and capturing the lives of the people I meet along the way. It’s my chance to unwind and recharge the creative juices, so that I’m fully prepared for the year ahead.
It’s a privilege to have had my travel work featured on prestigious websites and magazines over the last few years, and it was an honour to have been shortlisted for International Street Photographer of the Year by the ISPA.
