About: I've always had an interest in photography since I was young, following in my mother's foot steps. I started off self-teaching, however, enrolled myself into a photography course at college. Unfortunately, I didn't learn much from studies so decided it would be best to drop out and go it alone, best decision I made! 
I was asked to take up the role of club photographer in a local nightclub and have been there for a good three years now.

I have a particular interest in boudoir photography. My aim when taking photographs in to not only please myself with my work and standards but to also please the client. I feel boudoir photography can help create a confidence in someone who is maybe shy or not particularly body confident. Since being introduced to boudoir photography I have taken part in modelling, becoming a more confident individual myself and happier with my body, flaws included.
'Boudoir' photoshoot!
I do like to try and keep myself individual and interesting by limiting the amount of editing that goes into my work. I find much editorial work is over edited and takes away a lot of natural beauty; I find it rather disappointing.

Tell us something about yourself. What you do, passion and aspiration in life?: Photography is without a doubt my main passion, I hope to be noticed somewhere and build a bigger business and spread some confidence around to females and possibly even males if they would be interested in a 'boudoir' photoshoot!       

Who is your inspiration in life? How do you keep inspired?: My inspiration has to be my mother. She has helped me through a lot and passed a lot of her own knowledge my way. Although my style of photography can be looked down on by some, she has supported me and my work more than anyone.

What is your aspiration in life?: My aspiration is to learn. I love learning new things, new information, about new people. Another aspiration of mine is to travel, I know it sounds chiché but what could be better than travelling to different countries capturing life/lifestyle/ and humans in different areas around the world.

What is the most challenging part of your profession?: I think the most challenging part is keeping you individual and not blending into the rest of the photographers around the world (which can be very challenging considering how easy it is now-a-days to pick up a smart phone, snap a few portraits and call yourself a photographer)

Tell me about your proudest professional accomplishment.: I few spring to mind when mentioning proudest professional achievements. Apart from getting as far as I have, seeing the compliments from various people, I would say photographing a few famous faces such as Kylie Minogue, Ed Sheeran and Nicki Minaj have been my proudest moments.

How old do you have to be before it can be said you died of old age?: Dying of old age is definitely a myth... you're only as old as you feel!!
