Photography is my passion. Since graduating in 2013 from the University of Westminster, I have been actively photographing in the music industry. I also have a very extensive background in portrait, commercial, fashion and still photographic principles and techniques, with great knowledge of light and studio equipment.
What differentiates me from the other professionals is my scientific background. I have graduated in BSc (Hons) Photography and Digital Image, where for three years I've performed and concluded researches in practice and applications of digital imaging systems, giving me a wider angle of skills transferable to new developments in both information technology and imaging.
