I began my career working in a multimedia house giving me opportunities to learn about computers. From there I went on to assist renown automobile photographer Michael Lewis. During my time with Michael, I was rewarded with many opportunities to expand my own portfolio undertaking retouching on many award winning campaigns. With this experience under my belt, I began a solo career, shooting and retouching many award winning campaigns (SA Loeries and Cannes) for advertising agencies.

Ten years on and I decided to move continents. Although I have a love for the African landscape , I chose to relocate to the chillier climates in the UK, from where I have gone on to shoot a healthy bouquet of international locations. Basing myself in London, I have worked for both freelance and contracted lead photographer for moofe where I was given experience in backplate photography for CGIapplications and spherical HDRI data capture.
