About me

Capturing memorable, engaging photographs that speak to the hearts and minds of target audiences is what I do best as a professional Photographer. Equipped with my camera, a creative vision, and sharp post-production / editing skills, I excel at translating clients’ goals into visual stories. My experience spans a variety of mediums such as commercial products, fashion/beauty, architectural, landscape, event and conceptual photography. I enjoy the challenge of representing a product or subject in a new, unique way. As a lighting expert, I am adept at using a range of effects to highlight subjects in the most effective, artistic way possible, whether that includes natural, window, outdoors, flash or ambient light. My editing talents include producing seamless photographs by blending colours, tones and grading to accurately reflect the intended mood. I am always looking for new projects that challenge me creatively whilst meeting the specific needs of clients.
