About Me




Welcome to my website. I'm a South African born commercial photographer now living in Vancouver specializing in Fashion, Editorial, Interior and Travel photography. 


I Studied Graphic Design and Photography at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology in CapeTown, South Africa.  After many years of assisting renowned photographers like Gerda Genis, Robbert Koene, Hetty Zantman and Melanie Cleary I ventured out on my own. 


Currently I am thrilled to be creating beautiful interior images for AirBnB Plus as well as for interior designers and real estate agents.  Up until recently I was able to combine my love for photography and travel by photographing hotels and cruise ships for TripAdvisor, Oyster.com and Cruise Critic all across Western Canada. 


My main passion however, is portraiture and fashion. I work with both local and international modeling agencies creating model portfolios as well as fashion editorials for publication. I also shoot fashion campaigns and e-commerce content. Oh, and I was a photographer at the 2018 Vancouver Fashion Week. I loved that! 


I aspire to be a celebrity and fashion photographer and draw inspiration from photographers such as Richard Phibbs, Annie Leibovitz and Alexi Lubomirski to name but a few. Some other goals include publishing books and exhibiting my work in galleries.


Experience in: 

Advertising, Celebrity, Fashion, Beauty, Portrait, Product, Lifestyle, Food, Decor and Architecture.
