Being a film director, portrait photography is my quest for the story behind your eyes.
Finding truth, beauty and confidence in a moment... that look.
When we shoot, I'm not running a clock, we will make it fun, create an atmosphere...
Those are the ingredients for a better portrait, a fitting casting photo or a strong professional image.
