12 years experience in the film & TV industry in the camera and lighting department
, which gives my portraits their 'fashion editorial' flavor and my videos a strong cinematic visual style.

My speciality is people, especially: talent portfolios, portraits, fashion, baby & maternity, PR head shots and promotional images, but I also enjoy shooting products.

I have a portable studio and a studio at home as well as my own camera and lighting equipment. I also have a high-resolution iMac for viewing, editing and retouching images with and can publish your images in any format, in any size.

My strengths as a photographer lie with my ability to help my subjects relax, have fun and enjoy their shoot. Getting great shots is rewarding in itself and one of the strongest motivators for me to pursue this career, that and getting the opportunity to travel and meeting new and interesting people.

Besides my time, experience and equipment, my contribution to your project would be a high level of professionalism, enthusiasm and creativity.
