Tell us a bit about yourself…
I like to photograph anything but my passion lies with fashion photography. I am a daydreamer and I enjoy taking fashion image that have a dreamy and romantic feel to them. I work with both digital and film but film is where my heart is. I’ve recently bought a Bronica film camera which i have fallen in love with. I love how the film looks and the details that it manages to pick up.

What are your inspirations?
I get my inspirations from everyday life and the things I see, as well as from films, books and fashion magazines.
I am really critical of my work – I always feel there is something I could change. If I had to pick one piece though, I really enjoyed the last shoot I did, where my inspiration was the fairy tale The Moon.
My favourite photographer is Tim Walker. I love how he creates this fantasy – this other world of dreams and possibilities. I also like how he incorporates set design in to his work.
