Every photographer writes their own bio, often times in third person so when you talk about all the awards you've won, it doesn't feel or sound as pretentious. I've done it, for years, but I am really struggling with it this time around. Truth is there are a lot of incredibly talented artists out there with amazing accomplishments. I myself have several that I am very proud of. I just feel a little weird trying to lay it all out in an eloquently written paragraph to sum up a career that has taken me all over the world and afforded me opportunities to work with world leaders, A-list celebrities and some of the most successful people on the continent. See how I slipped that in there... But let's face it, you have options and that's a great thing, it's what pushes us all to do better, to continue to learn and innovate. My real hope for you visiting our website, is that you will be inspired enough to consider myself and my team as an option for your photography or video assignment. Be it your wedding, portraits, commercial work or a unique enquiry, I just want to chat with you directly and find out if we are a fit for each other.
Thanks for your time, I genuinely look forward to hearing from you,
