I’m a photographer based in Central London with a background in graphic design and retouching. I've recently worked with Facebook and Instagram as photography, as well as design agencies Saatchi & Saatchi and MSL. I've done a few BTS stills and architectural photography jobs. Personally I love travel and landscape photography! All above mentioned work can be viewed on this website. I'm always looking for new collaborations.
