ACTIVITIES



I’m a freelance fashion, portrait and music photographer, so whenever possible I like to go on photoshoots, whether I’m assisting another photographer or directing a shoot myself. Some of my work has been published in Marie Claire.

Working in the fashion industry has really opened my eyes to how much I love the world of fashion, I’ve also gotten three independent designers to showcase their collections during Fashion Weeks across major cities and all of the independent designers have been featured by major publications such as Vogue Italia, Harpers Bazaar and ELLE magazine. I also helped put on Oxford Fashion Studio’s AW19 Fashion Week show.
