Photography has been a hobby for me since I was about 13 or 14, but I began taking fashion photography seriously after a life changing event (open heart surgery). I just wanted to spend my time dedicated to something I loved. I began shooting on film a year ago but, again, took film photography more seriously the past summer, as I feel that it fits my style of shooting raw beautiful souls in beautiful clothes.

I met Courtney fashion week September 2014 as soon as I moved back to London. I wanted to shoot Courtney as she spoke about this location a lot, mentioning it was somewhere she loved to go as a kid. I wanted to somehow create a sense of nostalgia. I like shooting with Courtney as she always knows what she wants.
