About me

Life is full of unexpected twists and turns; I’ve been a soldier, a student, a humanitarian aid worker…and now I’ve become a wedding and family photographer. How did that happen?! I honestly don’t know! It has been quite some journey so far but one thing has remained constant throughout these different chapters – following my passion and a lust for living life to the full.

Experiences are everything to me whether it be breathing in fresh mountain air, walking through my favourite streets, enjoying a cup of tea with a friend or all the moments in-between our busy lives. I try my best to live in the moment and experience life for all that it is.

It’s this passion for the here and now that I like to get across in my photos. Capturing moments, savouring them, telling stories whatever they may be. I like to get in close and feel the atmosphere or emotion, but at the same time I like to hang back and let events unfold for themselves.

A photo journalist at heart – I love telling stories as much as I do living them.
