Hello! I am a professional freelance photographer based in Auckland.
My formative years were largely spent experimenting in the darkroom and exploring the natural environment with friends. I studied the great artists of the 20th Century and cinematographers in equal measure. I continued onto tertiary level graduating with a Bachelor of Graphic Design majoring in photography and moving image.
I approach each project with a vibrant, fresh and natural aesthetic with respect to what I am shooting. I produce a variation of images from elevated retail assets through to unique campaign and editorial collections.
I enjoy working in a team but can also art direct, style and produce. I also love to shoot and create short engaging, playful looping video's which bring a subject matter to life.
I believe listening and communicating is essential not only to understanding a brief but also to capture all subjects; whether it is a portrait or still life. Photography is not only about creating imagery but also about my relationship with what I am photographing. My work is a celebration of both photography and subject.
