The Story of a Photographer
I began my journey in Photography when I was 15 years old. I had used simple old cameras before, but by this age my father gifted me a real reflex manual camera with which I trully started learning the craft. It took me many years to bring my passion for photography to the centre of my professional life.
Here I am now. Spending endless nights behind the screen editing photos in Lightroom while listening to my favourite music and building galleries for my clients. Here I am now, scribbling ideas in notebooks for future photoshoots and pinning infinite images to my inspiration boards.
Here I am now, crying behind my camera after every speech by the father of the bride. Smiling because this is why I do this, because each stranger I encouter has a story to tell, and I am honoured to be able to capture just a bit of that story, so that it is easier to share.
I'm inspired by real stories. I feel connected to the people I photograph and that allows me to capture something genuine. I could sit down and people-watch all afternoon, or read autobiographies by total strangers. I find it fascinating how different and unique our lives can be.
I live in London so I regularly hear stories from all over the world. I am in awe whenever I get to hear someone telling me about their past, how they got here, and what their dreams are.
I aim to give my photographs a cinematic and timeless look. Texture, colour and emotion.
