I am a fine art photographer. I was artistically born in December 2008 and since then have been working toward creating new worlds within our world. I want the frame to invite a new perspective, for it to encourage people to see differently.
I love working with new models in a collaborative setting. I think that collaboration is key; there is always something we can learn from each other. My images are about taking the viewer to a new world, and I love working with models to achieve that.
I work very quickly, often taking roughly 5-10 pictures per photo shoot and the shooting process is on average 15 minutes long. All of my image are meticulously planned before shooting. I shoot all on location (sometimes rather uncomfortable locations!) and shoot exclusively right after the sun has gone down or before it has come up.
