My passion has always been photography and being able to express myself through the medium of art. Whilst growing up I was forever watching how the Cindy Crawfords, Naomi Campbells and Helena Christensens of the 80s and 90s supermodel era, dominated their industry.
My inspirations have been quite diverse, from the power women of Helmut Newton, to Corinne Day’s intimate shots of Kate Moss, the fantastical world of David Lachapelle to the realness of David Bailey’s portraits. My work has always been accompanied by a strong narrative as I like to add an extra level of depth to my artwork, to add sound to my sight.
I have been fortunate to have had a diverse career in the Fashion industry. Over the last seventeen years I’ve held positions from Head of Photography for an Advertising agency, shooting swimwear campaigns in Cape Town to designing and managing Ted Baker’s Fashion shows and last but not least working with some incredible women on a 1-2-1 portrait basis. This has enabled me to work with some of the top brands and emerging talents that this amazingly creative industry has to offer.
I create by merging my fine art photography portraits with mixed media art, illustrations and my imagination.
As any artist will say “creating art is a meditative form in itself”; my photography is my art.
