As an experimental photographer, I thrive on pushing the boundaries of special effects and techniques. Clients can trust in the consistent conceptual, visual, and creative excellence. Whether orchestrating splashes, crashes, or other special effects, my work is infused with an element of unpredictability and surprise.

However, this creative chaos is meticulously controlled within the confines of the studio environment.

"I thrive on curiosity and love delving into creative challenges. if you have a wild idea that seems impossible to execute, I'm your guy. I find ecstasy by finding solutions to seemingly insurmountable problems, turning your creative vision into reality. For me, photography transcends mere aesthetics; it’s about infusing each image with palpable emotion. Beauty alone is transient; it’s the emotion coursing through the veins of the photograph that breathes life into the stillness."

These images were created using a technique called light painting

Just as I cherish every moment spent with my Human subjects, my heart finds equal joy in caring for animals. There's a unique magic in the way they move, the way they express themselves, that captivates me endlessly. It takes patience and tenderness to coax them into feeling at home within the confines of a studio setting.

Photographing animals is not merely a passion; it's a calling. While I may not label myself as a wildlife photographer, my affinity for capturing the raw, unfiltered essence of creatures great and small knows no bounds. Their unpredictability is a canvas onto which I paint stories of wonder and awe.

This ongoing project, born from a deep-seated love for both photography and the animal kingdom, is a testament to my commitment to unraveling the beauty and complexity of our non-human companions. In the soft glow of studio lighting, amidst the familiar hum of the photographic process, these creatures reveal their innermost selves, allowing me to immortalise their spirit in every frame.

As an artist, I am compelled to confront the harsh realities of our world, even when they weigh heavy on the heart. In my personal project, I turned to the visceral symbolism of blood mingling with water to portray the ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestine—a conflict that has claimed the lives of innocent children and women, leaving behind a trail of sorrow and despair in both sides.

The crimson tendrils of blood, diffusing into the tranquil waters, form a hauntingly beautiful yet poignant representation of the senseless violence that plagues our world. It speaks volumes of the profound loss, the anguish, and the desperate need for peace that echoes through the ages.

Through this short video, I aim to provoke reflection and inspire empathy, urging viewers to confront the stark reality of war and its devastating impact on humanity. It is a solemn reminder of our collective responsibility to strive for understanding, compassion, and reconciliation, lest we perpetuate the cycle of suffering for generations to come.

I hope to ignite a spark of awareness and ignite the flames of empathy, fostering a renewed commitment to seek peaceful solutions in a world marred by conflict and division. For only through unity and understanding can we hope to heal the wounds of the past and forge a path towards a brighter, more compassionate future.

Unpredictability drives my artistic fervour. Those fleeting moments when liquids collide with objects, crafting breathtaking scenes, are simply awe-inspiring.

It's a delicate dance of timing and technique, but the outcome? Pure magic.

Recently, film photography has become my latest obsession. Despite initially learning cinematography with ARRI 435 in film school, I never had the chance to shoot a project on actual film due to the closure of the last film lab. Now, however, I've delved into shooting fashion and portraits on film, and I've discovered sources for specific film stocks and processing labs. While it's a time-consuming process, I'm absolutely loving every moment of it.
