Being an Australian, South African, I am now living in my ancestral home of England, more specifically London. I have received a formal education in Interior Architecture, as well as subsequent photographic training and all the while have managed to maintain my early love of art and architecture, which is constantly growing. This has led to a fascination in photography and design, both of which I very much enjoy participating in. I am now looking to join a company that I respect on a fundamental level and resonate with on a personal level as well as being a place that I can learn and expand on my diverse skills.
I have worked as a freelance photographer, shooting events, fashion editorials, interiors and portraits.
