Thanks for stopping by! Here’s a teensy bit about me.
For as long as I can recall, photography has been my love and my life.
Since I was very small I remember being fascinated by my Grandfather's photos. He had a natural eye for taking and developing the most beautiful family images back in 1950’s Guyana. The Royal Botanical Gardens was his favourite location, where tropical flowers, palm trees, and serene lakes dusted with water lilies would regularly feature in his backdrops. His subjects were usually my mum and her sisters, who were just youngsters at the time.
The best thing about Grandfather’s photos is how they could instantly transport me back in time and make me feel I was a there with them. I could feel my mum and auntie’s impatience as they squinted in the sun, waiting for their dad to take the shot. And I could see as the youngest sibling, how much of a fidget mum was. In most photos she'd be pulling faces, scratching mosquito bites, or clowning around, completely unable to contain her mischief. One photo could tell a thousand stories and perfectly capture the essence of their characters.
Since then I’ve wanted to follow in my Grandfather’s footsteps. I want to capture those momentary glimpses of emotion that no one else notices. I want my photos to take people to a different time and place. To spark imagination, inspiration, and to tell a story. My grandfather was a truly wonderful photographer and because of him, I became obsessed with documenting life as it is.
I just hope I’m doing him proud.
My love of people, landscapes, and the world around me has resulted in some unbelievable adventures. From capturing intimate supper clubs hosted by Michelin chefs to documenting international music festivals, to seeing my images published on huge posters across the London Underground, I’ve been blessed with so many amazing opportunities.
I’ve also had the privilege of working with a huge variety of awesome clients, including an amazing charity called Project Harar. Each year they send a team of doctors, surgeons and nurses – including my rockstar little sister – to Ethiopia. Their focus is on performing life-changing surgery on children and young adults with severe facial disfigurements, who, because of the way they look, are ostracised from society. Post-surgery, the patients have a better chance of being able to attend school, get married, and find work, so the charity’s work is nothing short of transformative. It’s been an absolute honour documenting their journey and the achievements of this incredible complex medical mission.
If you’re in the Algarve and have a requirement, whether it’s an relaxed family shoot on a gorgeous sun-drenched beach, some professional headshots to help your business stand out, or some high-quality images to showcase your special event, just give me a shout. I still fly back to the UK for shoots too, so if you like what you’ve seen so far, I’d love to hear from you. In the meantime feel free to check out my portfolio, or learn what it’s like to work with me.
