Photographing people is a joy for me. The experience of getting to know my clients and subjects as we work together and their anxiety falls away is heaven for me! I love capturing the essence of a person in a single image and would do that every day for the rest of my life if I could! It's true what they say: if you do what you love , you never have to work a day in your life!
I love working on personal and lifestyle portrait projects. These shoots are in depth, connected and I always feel like I walk away with a new best friend. Photographically they are also so rewarding: being able to give a client a piece of art that will likely outlive us both is a special experience, particularly when that work is so deeply personal to us both.
Nothing as yet, I've been too busy working!
I worked in Kenya for 9 months on a medical aid project.
