"The camera is the least important element in photography."

—Julius Shulman


A lifelong Londoner working as I'm a freelance photographer specialising in creative portraits and events. With strong links to Centre for Charity Effectiveness (CCE) at Cass Busines School, I offer generous discounts to registered charities for their events and other photographic needs.


My photographic interests are hugely varied, leaning strongly towards images of people. Whether that's portraits and headshots or pictures of candid street life, my best photos are about people.


I get a thrill from crafting unique and interesting images of people; using light, shadow and colour to create dynamic photos. Photography is my passion and I invest a huge amount of time into learning and enhancing my knowledge and ability to create in new and interesting ways.
