Biography

"People say photographs don't lie, mine do."
David LaChapelle

Back in the summer of 2009 I began to obsess about photography, spending hours stumbling through the internet looking at every type of photograph available. In October 2009 I took the plunge and bought myself a Canon 1000D and started a 365 Self Portrait Project. It was an extremely challenging project, but I am proud to be a self taught photographer who has, I feel, grown enormously since I first began. I specialise mainly on extreme make-up photography, using colourful and bold body paint to create striking pieces of art.
