"One of the things I love most about photography is that you can create and document history simultaneously. When I look at imagery from previous eras, I find that the feelings evoked are of awe, wonder and sometimes nostalgia. I realise that when my images are viewed in the future, they may hopefully evoke the same feelings in someone else."

"This, however, is looking at photography in its' traditional sense. As I have grown and technological advancements have been made, I now also look at photography as a creative tool for artists to fulfil their creative vision, often mixing it with other mediums such as graphic design, illustration and music and video. All in all, this creative art form never ceases to amaze me and just like many others, the more I learn, the more I realise how little I know."

In Real LifeWhat We Seee

"I once heard someone say that being a photographer is like having the worlds best visa, as you are often granted access into parts of life that many people will never experience."

FinlandWhat We Seee

"I think this rings true as some of the people I have been fortunate enough to meet and places I have travelled to, wouldn’t have been possible without photography. I hope I can continue to improve at my craft and experience more that the world has to offer."
