I love working with and interacting with different people, and engaging with them in their own individual ways. You can learn a lot from people just by spending time photographing them. I also love the travel opportunities it has given me and taken me on many different adventures.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I like to bring people's personalities out at photoshoots, and making them comfortable in front of the camera is key. They should feel like they are hanging out with a friend who just happens to have a camera with them clicking away. This works great with couples that we capture, as it allows them to really be in the moment with each other and let their love glow in front of the lens.

A fun fact about this photographer
I have a small Star Wars obsession which has created a giant collection of toys that are on display in our studio/office, which always becomes a talking point when people come to visit.
