About me

 

I am a portrait photographer living in London and I love what I do. For me, it’s all about people – meeting new people, chatting to people, hearing their stories, forging friendships, building community, capturing the true essence of someone. I want to capture something extraordinary in every image that I take and will always manage to get the shot needed and bring out the true essence of anyone who needs a good photo. If you need a headshot, or a family portrait, an engagement or wedding shoot, children or corporate, any people shot basically, I will get what you need. It's because people are my passion! I discovered my passion for photography as a teenager and then spent much of the early noughties travelling around the world, visiting and photographing communities in India, Peru, South Africa and Swaziland. This included spending time on the Ground Zero site in New York, witnessing HIV/AIDS work in Southern Africa, meeting community workers in two slum areas of Peru and paying many visits to orphanage and leprosy projects across India. It was through my travels where I gained a fresh understanding about the alluring combination of brokenness and beauty within everyone. Today, I try to capture this through my photography – the divine amongst the ordinary – looking at things from the corner of the eye rather than from the centre. It’s in such detail that I delight and which acts as one of the main inspirations for my photography.
