Hello, welcome to my website. I'm a Bristol-based freelance photographer and yoga teacher from Belgium. I have been working as a freelance photographer in Cambodia, Indonesia, Germany, Belgium and the UK since 2007.
From editorial, portrait, and event photography, to travel reportage and project documentation for NGOs, I am very versatile and flexible in my commercial work.
As an artist, my practice is largely informed by my degree in Social Psychology and my yoga practice - I am interested in human beings, their emotions, relationships and identities.
I'm available for commissions in the UK and Europe.
I'm also a Photovoice-trained participatory photography project facilitator and I'm always interested in hearing about other projects, possibilities for collaborations and fresh ideas.
Please use the contact page if you would like to get in touch to hire me for commissioned work, to buy an image, or share a project idea with me.
