About

While I was born and educated in England, I have lived in several different countries around the world (the USA, Spain, Saudi Arabia, Chile and the United Arab Emirates). I love languages and interacting with people from diverse cultures. It always makes me feel as though I am constantly learning, something which I value greatly.

My passion for photography was first aroused at school, where I came across the work of Bill Brandt. I was so captivated by his ability to mislead an audience and trick them into seeing something that was actually never there.

In Dubai, I had the opportunity of working with photographers within the advertising industry. This enabled me to learn the fundamentals of lighting and appreciate how best to manage a photoshoot.
