I knew I liked working with people and when the shoots at my previous job involved more than jeans and a t-shirt, something stylish and elegant, that was something I also liked.

 ABOUT
I started my career and worked as a Web designer for ten years. In the last two years where I used to work for a design company in Oxford, I volunteered to help out as a family portrait photographer. With no experience with photography, I had to learn the camera fast. I had to learn about lenses, shutter speed, aperture and all the technical stuff. After two years I had also gained experience with working with people, families and children but it never inspired and motivated me. Something was missing. After leaving the company, I had the urge to search other areas of photography, so I travelled the UK photographing landscapes. It was fun, I enjoyed the adventures, but I admit, it was lonely. I knew I liked working with people and when the shoots at my previous job involved more than jeans and a t-shirt, something stylish and elegant, that was something I also liked. It came to me! Ahh, fashion and portraiture. I then searched for workshops relating to fashion and portraiture and lighting styles, and that's when my passion and determination grew. I can travel, I can meet people, I can create scenes and stories. To me, this is the most inspiring and creative genre of photography. And my biggest inspiration in fashion and photography are retro, classic and vintage periods of the 20th century.
