About Me

Photography started to be part of my life when I picked up my first SLR (a Canon AE-1) at the age of sixteen. Ever since I have been shooting pictures with passion. To me photography is not just about finding a balance between shutter speed, aperture and ISO. It is about creativity, imagination, pushing the boundaries. It is about playing with the seemingly endless possibilities of light/lighting - inside and outside the studio. It is about capturing the mood of a situation and leaving an everlasting impression. Pictures tell us a story and indeed can be worth a thousand words. I work as a freelance photographer and am a contributor to Getty Images and National Geographic. Currently based in Beijing, China. I shoot both in the field and in the studio, both have their own challenges. Assignments range from shooting portraits, products, landscape, architecture (interior/exterior) and event photography. When I am not on assignment you will find me traveling, either hiking in the mountain, wandering through the desert, or roaming the streets of interesting neighborhoods… and of course the camera is always with me!.
