When I was a kid I was very creative and liked to draw/sketch, when I became a teenager I used to make a lot of shortfilms, in the process I found my love for stills.
What would you say your style is and has it changed throughout the years? If so why?
At the very beginning I have been influenced by the cold tones of Brandon Woelfel, but then quickly conceptualized my own niché.
How do you approach a shoot? Do you pre-plan or is it a click and run?
I face a shoot with the greatest calm, I prepare for it by studying the location and then submitting to my visual instinct.
Is there an end goal you’re trying to achieve with your images, be it an aesthetic or story?
Eighty percent of the time my primary objective is to tell a story, evoke an emotion or create an opportunity for the mind to wander. My other goal is to try to capture the essence of the models’ unique feminine beauty and the essence of who she is at this point in her life. I’m always amazed at what a camera can capture of who we really are.

The best camera is the one you have with you an so I welcome the fast technical development of mobile phone cameras.
