I love being able to use my vision to express myself. I love being able to connect with people through my photography in a palpable way. Sometimes explaining what it is about an image that makes you feel a certain way isn't really possible, it just does. I personally think leaving people lost for words, in such a way, and doing it through your own self expression, is pretty cool.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
Commercial - One that stands out in particular was for a bakery where I used the utensils and equipment used for making cakes as a background and created a cool themed environment Fashion - Living in London makes fashion shoots so much fun! So many famous streets and landmarks to use as surroundings. Always very special. Portraits and Headshots - These are always very personal shoots, you're trying to capture a little bit of who this person is, through a still image. So these shoots can be very special because it's all about creating rapport and learning about someone new. Events - Got to be on your toes at all time when covering events. Luckily my perception is one of my strengths so I'm always switched on and ready to capture the special unmissable moments.
