ABOUT

Bio

I’m a fine art landscape photographer based on the island of Barbados.

Emotion and a sense of exploration are the main things I look for in my creations.

I’ve always has a great love for nature and actually got a degree in biology with the hope of becoming a marine biologist.

Watching old Jacques Cousteau tv shows was a big inspiration for me.

In 2012 I got my first DSLR to take some food shots for our family restaurant.

It didn’t take me long to find myself spending more and more time along the coasts of the island, exploring familiar locations with a new sense of vision.

For me there is something almost magical about landscape photography.

It allows me to reach this nexus point between just being there in nature, which is amazing in its own right and interacting with the environment to create something expressive and unique from my own personal vision.
