An investment banker turned photographer
Starting a career in finance right out of university, I kept my passion for photography going, even if it was just taking pictures from my blackberry (yes, a blackberry).
Turning passion into a career
In 2013 I quit my cushy banking job to focus on my photography. A crazy move, since I had to build up my portfolio from scratch. By just experimenting and no formal training, just practice practice practice, slowly but surely I started turning photography into my career.
The power of Instagram
A huge shoutout to Instagram, which I believe was an essential part to my success. As a place to showcase my work, get discovered and to network, it was pivotal in my career, and still is today.
Exploring the world
Now I work freelance for various companies, collaborate with big brands like Apple and Instagram, and been fortunate enough to have been invited to beautiful cities like Morocco, Istanbul, Amman and others for travel photography.
