About Me

I am a photographer, a lover, an activistic, a poet, gardener, jewelry maker, and dancing machine.

*Please DO NOT contact me about retouching. I am an experienced graphic artist as well as photographer and do all work in-house. I prefer complete control over my art vs outsourcing any editing work. Thank you for respecting my privacy and creative control.

"In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you."


Contact me for current rates.

I am available for shooting TFP with models that have unique concepts or "looks". I am a photographer because I am passionate about creating images that capture a perfect moment or idea so I am always stoked to work with someone that will add exceptional beauty to my portfolio.

Even if you do not have a photo budget, PM me or send me an email and depending on the assignment and how busy my schedule is, I may be interested in working with you. If you never ask, you will never know.

If you are wondering what I am looking for in a TF shoot with a model or are unsure of how to take that next step into getting an mazing portfolio - check out some poses that I have highlighted:

California - 2023
Corsica, France June 12-July 1rd 2023
Boston/NH July 5th-July 10th, 2023

NOW BOOKING for my Faerie Tales Photo Series. These shoots will be featured in a traveling art show, starting in California circa 2030.

Hey, I'm interested to come to America in future but at the moment while traveling is still difficult, I am offering remote shoots in Melbourne until March 4th or 7th. I'm currently working with other photographers to do remote/virtual shoots but I hope to get my own gear & do more on location remote shoots so I should have other locations around Australia to offer in future. I have a city central apartment with a rooftop balcony, large natural light windows, a range of backdrops & can use the buildings facilities of a gym, spa, pool & sauna as well as the indoor concreate fire escape. My rates for remote shoots are less than what I charge for in person shoots. Let me know how many hours you would like me to quote you for & if you like to pay by PayPal or a bank transfer to my UK bank or AUS bank. We would tether the camera to the laptop & screen share so you can control the settings/shots. We can chat over FaceTime or WhatsApp during the shoot.

Would love to know what style you would like to shoot & when. Hope to hear from you soon! All the best, kind regards.
