"My love of photography is people-centric. I very much enjoy studying and capturing the characteristics and idiosyncrasies that often elude normal observation but once seen are deeply familiar to the observer. I believe we can all detect inauthenticity in a portrait. Approaching a subject with openness and respect, I use my intuition to gently navigate and evoke authentic expression. To have the opportunity to capture a hint of the narrative of a person is a great honour. My responsibility is to remain receptive and hold a safe space, offer organic direction and click the shutter at the right moment. When the essence of a person suddenly dances in front of me, time stops and all I can think is seize the moment. When you look beyond the camera, become present with yourself, breath, let go and drop a little bit of your veneer, I have a great chance of capturing who you really are, your true beauty. Let me in and I'll do my best to gently find you." View More...
