I specialise in fashion and portraiture, my passion lies in capturing each individual’s personal state of grace.  Capturing frozen moments of motion fascinates me, I am always that photographer that tells their subject to jump in the air or toss their hair, I have even gone as far as shooting entire sessions on a trampoline.

I knew I wanted to be a photographer since the age of 13, so that is when I started practising, I found that using film cameras was the best way to learn about light. I studied straight after high school, I have won competitions here and there which is encouraging. Olympus awarded me five grand for their “Anything But Ordinary” competition back in 2012 (which was of course spent entirely on camera gear).

Whether I am shooting headshots or high-end fashion campaign I strive to bring out each individual’s enthusiasm, elegance and beauty.

Creativity can present itself in many ways, my goal is to broaden my horizons, offering more and enhancing my skill-set. Art, design and photography all go hand-in-hand and alongside my photography career I worked as a graphic designer for 3 years. Even though I was self-taught I found that working and learning in the industry was a unique experience that pushed me to where I am today.

In 2016 I was granted a scholarship to study at CATC Design School. This wonderful opportunity enabled me to really delve into graphic design on another level, channeling my inner artist and helping me find my own identity in the design world.

I graduated from CATC Design School in May 2017.
