For the last 22 years I’ve traveled the world taking photographs, assisting photographers and making videos. My world of photography is a democracy of vision. Everyone and everything I photograph are treated with the same care, complexity and significance. I’ve worked in the music industry (as musician, photographer and director), fashion, sport, wedding and art industry. I’ve also directed and camera operated on many commercials, music videos and documentary movies.

In addition to photography, I’m also a musician. My band Whirlwind Heat has toured the world many times over and released more than a dozen published works. I’m currently writing and recording for a new project called Swanny. We’ve released 2 EP’s.
