Since I was young, I have always enjoyed photography, it wasn’t until I turned 18 that I received my first DSLR camera and that’s when I started to take photography more seriously. It was only in the last couple of years that I started to use my phone as the camera’s were getting better and it was easier to take around on trips and walks. I mainly specialise in landscape and nature photography, but I enjoy taking photographs of many other things such as cityscapes, seascapes and anything that inspires me.
