Portrait - self

“You employ stone, wood and concrete, and with these materials you build houses and palaces. That is construction. Ingenuity is at work.
But suddenly you touch my heart, you do me good, I am happy and I say: “This is beautiful.” That is Architecture. Art enters in.”  ~Le Corbusier


See your home in a new light. Your landscape, your culture, your living space, your self… these all make up your home, and my passion in life is to shed light on your extraordinary corner of this world.

When I was 17, I picked up a vintage Mamiya camera that had been handed down to me. I haven’t put cameras down since then, and I still have (and use!) that Mamiya camera.

Life has since taken me down many roads. From earning my degree in Architecture, to taking 4 months to teach in India, to leaving a safe paycheck for the chance to live my dream… I’ve grabbed every opportunity that’s come my way!

Bring light to the everyday beauty that is often overlooked.

In spaces

In people

In objects
