I’m a portraiture photographer, I take pictures of people.
Born in East Berlin, grew up in Sussex, England. My first years were spent behind the iron curtain.
My goal is to show the beauty, grace, strength and enthusiasm of people. I focus on non-models and place regular people in exaggerated situations that highlight an aspect of who they are. I look for a sense of defiance in my work.
I’m based in London but travel for projects around the globe. As well as a bit of photo assisting for Annie Leibovitz in New York, I shoot a lot of portraiture as well as assignments for agencies like Getty Images, WireImage, the Redferns Music Library, Getty Travel and others, including my celebrity portraits over at ContourPhotos.
