I began taking photography seriously after buying my first digital camera in 2005. Over time the photos that kept my interest were the ones taken of people at events. When I photographed event participants close up, filling most of the frame, they were the photos I most preferred. That’s when I decided to focus solely on event portraiture.
Lately I have been actively attending events year on year, predominantly in London but in different countries when the chance arises. Events typically covered include bodypainting, burlesque, carnivals, charity events, cosplay, festivals, pride parades, protests, tattoo conventions and vintage events.
