About Me

Get to know me...

I grew a love for photography in 2012, when my grandad taught me everything he knows about photography and how to get a great picture. Since then, I have studied photography at school and also taught myself in various different ways from experimenting, watching YouTube videos and learning from other photographers I know. 

My main love is landscape and travel photography, but I do dabble into the odd portrait or product shot.Taking photos for my blog really does help with product photos and learning different skills. I am always snapping away when I'm on holiday. I love to keep my photographs as natural as possible, with minor editing to be done to show the beauty we have in our world. 


I am always excited to see where inspiration will take me next. For more information about my experience, portfolio or how we can collaborate on an upcoming project, get in touch today.

 

Location

I am located in High Wycombe and Buckinghamshire in United Kingdom. 
I can travel to London and around the United Kingdom at a cost. 
I could potentially travel to shoots as well. 

My charging structure is to come, so keep your eyes peeled. 

 

FAQ

What cameras do you use?

I currently use the Olympus PEN EP-L7 and the Canon 60D. I have been using these cameras for the past 3 years and have no plans to move on from them yet. For my Canon, I am currently using the Canon 50mm and 10-18mm and the Tamron 70-300mm. For my Olympus, I am currently using the Pancake 14-42mm and the 40-150mm.

How long did you study photography for?

I studied photography for 2 years whilst in 6th Form studing A Levels. But I have been self teaching myself over the last 5 years, I find being out in the open with a camera is a great way to learn because you are always faced with different situations and scenarios.

Do any photographers inspire you?

My current photography inspirations are Annie Leibovitz, Gillian Wearing and a few other photographers. They all vary in terms of style but I love them all for individual reasons.

Have you attended any photography events?

I love attending the Wildlife Photographer Of The Year exhibition at the National History Museum in London. I get so inspired by the young photographers around the world, a young boy as old as 6 from India can take such an amazing photograph. It really inspires me to be better.

Who inspired you to start photography?

My grandad did! My grandad showed me his cameras and the shots he had taken. He was a president for the Wycombe Photographic Society (1988 – 1990) and won quite a few awards for the shots he had taken. My Nan had even taken a shot of me on a body board on our holiday to Devon, and she won an award too. Since then photography has always been in my blood, whether it’s something small or something big like a travel landscape shot.

What styles are you interested in?

I am all up for experimenting with my styles and what routes I want to go down currently. I like to keep my shots natural and showing the natural beauty of the focus. 

I have delved into product, portrait, travel and animal photography as well as at events but I'm interested in trying other styles along the way. 

Do you have a question to ask me?
