I am a photographer based in London. I have a documentary approach to my photography and I am very fond of natural light. Although, I often design elaborate lighting set ups for films, theatre and opera shows. Both disciplines enhance each other and their qualities emerge and imprint themselves on each project accordingly.

I work with directors, producers, designers, musicians, actors and journalists. I cherish developing ongoing collaborations as much as meeting new inspiring professionals.
