  • Pandemic Land (April 2021)
    Pandemic Land (April 2021)The inspiration for this piece came from the hope of being able to start my 1 year internship at Walt Disney World Orlando. Unfortunately due to the big bad bug my offer was retracted, however I am still hopeful for new opportunities. This image was also was included in a zine that was sold for charity which is something I am very proud to have contributed towards.

  • Upstream / Social media images (December 2021)
    Upstream / Social media images (December 2021)The images bellow are from my most recent shoots. I was tasked to take some holiday themed images for the brand Upstream. I was given free creative reigns and decided I wanted give a large variety of colour palettes and set ups to choose from. The clients were very surprised and excited by my images and have created a posting schedule for a few of the images. (These images were intended to be seen on an iPhone size screen).
