My Bio I started photography as a hobby when I was in a desperate need for an creative outlet. It's slowly consuming my free time and I'm loving it.

I started taking snaps and slowly started taking photos which I thought would never happen. While not all photos are winners, there's a rare few that I really like and want to share.

My favourite subject to shoot for a long time was landscapes, but as my style is evolving, so is my taste and I'm really drawn to street and urban photography.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
A collection of travel photos or a collection of my work as a whole.

I just invested in a lightbox, so a book full of toys might be on the way too.
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
I recently discovered the work of Vivian Maier through a few websites and have become obsessed with her work. It's inspired me to take a few more risks and the occasional selfie.

I also love flipping through Humans of New York by Brandon Stanton, the little stories complement the street portraits perfectly.
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
The Photographer's Playbook by Jason Fulford & Gregory Halpern. Full of quotes and tips, lots of projects to get you out of a creative rut or inspiration to try something new.
