What I do:
Photography primarily. I generally retouch my personal images to my taste. If it is required by client, I would also do skin retouching to their taste.
Favourite thing about my job:
What I enjoy the most is the process of getting the winning shot. Sometimes it’s not planned, which makes it more exciting for me.
Favourite thing I’ve ever shot:
This is a difficult answer to give, because I would be excited or extremely happy about a particular shoot I’ve done, then it disappears when I do another assignment that may be more interesting/different from the last shoot.
I would love to do a fashion editorial for a major magazine or brand, as well as have my personal projects be exhibited in international galleries.
Fashion photography, Commercial photography and Fine Art photography.
