My portraits are created by looking closely at the person in front of me. It is like an opportunity for me to know their story. The character of the photo is determined by the connection and trust we build together in that moment. In doing so, it creates a moment where the subject opens and reveals their true nature and strength. I strive for this, for photographs that are pure and authentic.

As a person, I’m a calm (but sometimes a little chaotic) observer, and I let instinct and the moment drive my work. The portraits below were photographed on commission or just because the person inspired me!
