About

swash photography |swɒʃ fəˈtägrəfē|—n.

1. evocative, sumptuous, inspiring.

2. stylish, swashbuckling imagery from around the world.

One of the reasons I love to travel is the experience of being completely transported into a different culture and a different world. Photography is my way of capturing and conveying the signature experiences and imagery of the different places I've had the opportunity to visit.

Cities and built environments in particular hold a special fascination for me — the hidden histories behind an old monument or paving stone, mixing together with the vibrancy, colour and energy of the metropolis. There in the midst of the ordinary the exotic awaits discovery; within the unremarkable daily grind of urban life, there is still much room for exploration and romance.
