    About me

    I am an enthusiastic and motivated photographer with experience in fashion photography, videography, styling and editing. Having completed a Bachelor of Civil Engineering specializing in architectural design, I bring my robust design skills and eye for detail to every project. I have a strong understanding of composition, style, fashion trends, and art history and apply this to add substance and flair to any shoot. Having worked full-time as a poker dealer / cashier in one of London’s largest casinos, I regularly manage the emotions and behaviour of people at their most stressed and vulnerable. However, I am happiest when I create; photography, fashion, styling and recently videography.

    Recent addition to my portfolio include: product photography for a startup clothing retailer, Banfi Style. Initially hired as a photographer, I became creative director and marketing manager for the company within a few months. I have hosted 3 sample sales in London that were a huge success. As a freelance photographer, I have done a series of shoots for British RnB singer Brook Baili; promotional photos for DJ Suki Rae, headshot photography for Jade Asha, UK actress and director; London shoots for fetish and circus performer Cat LaCohie and many more. My portfolio is available at:

    For the past 7 years, I have been working in the casino industry which has proven to be a fantastic experience that has afforded me the opportunity to pursue my passion for photography. Whilst working at the casino, I have photographed, modelled and assisted for VIP Parties, Charity Events, Fine Dining Food Photography, and social media content. Creativity, design, beauty and style make me very happy. While working full time, I always busy myself organizing and styling shoots for individuals and companies as my side hustle. I have set up my own private photo studio where I can easily produce high quality, well-lit images from the comfort of my own home. Videography is still very new to me, but I am extremely enthusiastic, learning fast and I want to develop my skills further. My recent project where I assisted and realized my passion for film was a music video for Geo & Laura Roy “Light is Coming”, available on YouTube. I also have had the opportunity to assist and shoot a short film, The Contract, winner of the LAFA June Award, 2018.

    I am friendly and approachable person. I am a quick thinker, problem solver that always puts herself in someone else’s shoes – this brings empathy that creates trust. I find it endearing working with a diverse range of projects and people. I always aim to deliver exceptional results, I am a geek when it comes to technology, exploring gear, software and new ways to capture images. I also believe that only a challenge makes our mind stretch and talents evolve. I cannot find words to express how much I want to be full-time involve in creating digital content, advertising, marketing campaigns, music videos and films.
