In the early 2000's I picked up my first camera. An old Olympus film camera. I forget which model it was, but once I saw what it could do, it changed my life.

After school, I knew photography was definitely the route I want to travel and furthered my studies in Professional Photography at the National College of Photography (now Vega School of Photography) in 2008 - 2009. At that stage Canon released the legendary 5D Mark II, introducing a whole new route I needed to explore. Video.

And just like that my life changed once more.

Now almost a decade later, with the same 5D Mark II, I've found my passion in shooting events, spending time in my studio shooting commercial products and portraits, creating music videos, short films and documentaries.
