I recently graduated from the Green School, an international school in Indonesia.
I have returned to Australia looking for permanent work in photography. Photography is my passion and I have done numerous courses and workshops in the field.
I have done 4 courses with Sebastian Suki Belaustegui, a photographer for National Geographic Magazine. We travelled together in Indonesia photographing people, villages, and landscapes. I have a passion for travel and the work I did with Suki combined my two interests.
I am particularly interested in portrait photography. I try to capture the character of the person in a fleeting snap of my camera. I hope my portraits tell a story rather than simply depict a face.
I completed a ‘Fashion Photography’ course at Style Academy. I love exploring different styles of fashion, one of my favourite pastimes is visiting markets and vintage clothes stores. Again, I combine my passion for fashion with my photography.
Music is another love of mine. I particularly enjoy photographing bands and musician while they are performing. I try to capture their passion for the songs they have written and share with their audience.
I am also interested in film photography as an art and have developed my own recipe for cafenol development to avoid using harsh chemicals.
I currently live in Newtown, Sydney, and I am exploring the culture of the city through photography.
