Creating Headshots, Portraits, Fashion and Concept looks for portfolios, websites, personal branding, and social media. From classic styles, to cinematic shoots I enjoy using Flash as well as LED and natural light and in combination to create the shots.
I have been fortunate to work with amazing people and my extensive experience and open approach and style allows me to be highly creative and adaptable to the shots you need.
Based in Pimlico Central London, I work with actors, models, musicians, dancers, entertainers, corporate, personal brand clients and social media influencers, all with a wide variety of needs.
I'm very creative, highly collaborative, calm and easy to work with and I ensure that every session is easy going and relaxed with just a little coaching and directing if needed to bring out the best in you and show you at your best.
My lighting choices and setups are customised to you as I prefer to light talent individually. I have multiple options when it comes to lighting and backgrounds and can be as classic or creative as needed and clients tell me they enjoy the creative sessions the most. Typically even for the classic sessions I like to finish off with a few casual and creative shots to provide bonus alternatives.
Working from a home studio setup and on location I book only one client per day which allows me to focus all my attention on you for the session without distraction or clockwatching.
All my image are created at the home studio as well as on location around London.
Im using Canon cameras, lenses and a range of light modifiers, backgrounds and creative techniques for the different looks. I'm creating a range of styles with moody and dramatic shots including Hollywood 1930s.

I would love to work with him again "
