Bio... something about you. Including camera equipment and software you're using...
Ever since I can recall I have been fascinated by the world of art and imagination and spent years looking for ways to fuse my vision with a technique which could bring my ideas to life. Whilst studying Graphic Design at TUT I realized that photography, when combined with my knowledge of editing software could give life to all the images and ideas filling my head, which seemed so impossible to do before.

“One of my biggest dreams was to be a great painter or illustrator, but then I realized that I can do the same thing with Photography, which sent me on a whirlwind career through the world of magazine publishing, broadcasting and finally makeup artistry”.

I love doing creative portraits and fashion photography and my work always lends itself to the more avant garde, heavily edited style of photography.

Being a makeup artist as well gives me the opportunity to be in charge of every image I want to create from inception to completion and gives me great artisitc freedom and pleasure.

I love sharing knowledge and exchanging information and tips with fellow creative people and believe it is the key to a succesful career as both a photographer and makeup artist.
