I will always remember the moment that I came into contact with a wild vixen whilst walking a dimly lit path on the outskirts of my hometown. Through Totem I wanted to capture the heart-stopping moment when the wild breaches the barriers of the city and reminds us that the line between humans and wildlife is not as clear-cut as we would like to believe in, and that in the animal kingdom, the only thing we can count on is unpredictability, that the unexpected should be expected.
Hummus was diagnosed with Feline Leukaemia when she was a kitten and is unable to play outside with other cats. However, Hummus is a total fashion diva and likes to model new looks in her own personal cat-sized studio. In these unique, full-colour portraits I channel the quirky and sassy personality of my extremely well-dressed and stylish cat.
Flowers are the personality of plants. Upon bloom I wanted to capture the symmetric beauty of some common garden flowers, however void of their most common and pronounced visual characteristic, colour. This series set out to expose the exquisite symmetry present in nature.
A Place To Go, Please
The project ‘A Place To Go, Please’ visually communicates the relationship between various drink cultures and their associated personalities with the use of creative editorial photography and intricate photo editing techniques. In Paris, a lipstick-stained wine glass conjures up a dreamy date night in the French capital, while London pays homage to the typical afternoon tea, enjoying a butter scone over a light read.

I was a bit of an amateur geologist as a child, I would collect beautiful mineral specimens, label and store them for my own archive. Now in my 20’s, I was sorting through a box of my old childhood things when I came across my old collection. However my collection now seemed silly, why was I so impressed by these gemstones? So I decided to combine my new passion for photography with my childhood passion for geology in an attempt to reignite an old burned out flame... and here are the results.
