I’m passionate about both music and photography, and I am skilled at creating high-quality creative photographic images that have captured attention on social media. My images have appeared in online music magazine publications such as Pure Nowhere, Concert Crap and the Christian Beat , and have also appeared on Facebook, Instagram on the behalf of bands, festivals, musicians and artists.
