I Starting photography as a keen enthusiast in 2003, I quickly realised that photography was more than just a hobby; a combination of positive feedback, encouragement from professional photographers and a passion for not just taking photographs, but the theory and science behind photographic process, reinforced my belief that photography would be a major part of my life. 

After spending years perfecting my own style of photography and post production, I studied photography at the famous London College of Communication as well as being mentored by two fantastic photographers from South Korea: Marshall Kim and Jon Pak from the famed 'Team Healing Brush'. Through their mentoring I was able to improve my portraiture photography techniques and define my own unique style.

I have always been a keen lover of music, poetry, hiking and fine art. These interests are a huge inspiration for me and I translate these influences in to my landscape work. I have travelled around the UK and Europe capturing a range of different styles and undertaking various landscape and social documentary projects.

I have delivered multiple talks regarding my philosophy behind my landscape and my project work, to local photo clubs in and around London, to local schools and in 2018 I was Tedx Peckham speaker where I discussed my project in to the the changes around Peckham.

I have been working freelance for a number of years and have been involved in a range of projects for a large and diverse number of clients including Transport for London, The Camberwell Free Film Festival, The Camberwell Food & Drink Festival, and a range of local businesses. My work has also been featured in the Daily Telegraph, One Stop Arts website and more.
