Service Description

I make pictures. I love what I do, and can almost guarantee you'll love it too.

I'm passionate about my trade, and treat every job with the utmost respect aand reverence. I'm honoured to have worked with some amazing people, on some beautiful projects, and I'm always looking forward to the next.

I use Adobe's Lightroom 5, Photoshop CC, Premiere CC and After Effects where required. I truly believe these are the best tools in the business.

I've been fortunate enough to have shot some stunning weddings, worked behidn the scenes on Emmy and Oscar award nominated feature films and series', and shot primary interviews for various A-list celebrities.

My true passion is photojournalism, and finding the truth in a moment.
When that isn't possible or applicable, I just try and create the prettiest pictures possible.
