My passion for photography started when i noticed a lot of my friends were concerned about their body image and would harm themselves to relieve some of the self hatred they had burning inside of them. I saw photography and art as my way to help them, and to show them how i saw them and how many others did too.
My training was through myself and my personal development learning from inspirational photographers in the industry that i had the pleasure of meeting, Louis Murphy the photographer for KEVIN.MURPHY came across me in a photography group page on Facebook and asked me to come assist him on a shoot for Jack London, from that moment my career in the industry spiked and i can gladly say that networking has been my biggest learning tool.
Since then I've been working professionally as a photographer and videographer in the fashion industry for 3 years, working with big clients such as Obey, Diesel, SuperDry, Four Kings, WNDRR and Travis Honda along side working with many start up fashion labels, established makeup artists, charities and models from Chadwick, Vivien's, Giant and FRM model management.
I love the happiness i bring to other people, the reaction and smiles on peoples faces when they see a photo we have created together and go, "I look amazing!". Since day one, I have only ever wanted to show people how beautiful they are and i'm so glad my job allows me to never stop seeing the beauty in the world.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done such a variety of shoots; events, weddings, baptisms, runways, editorials, modelling portfolios, commercial, you name it and i have done it. how i make them special is through my creativity and my eye, I can see moments differently to others and i can quickly capture them for the world to see.
