As a passionate observer of the world around me, my love for photography came naturally and has been fueled by a lifelong connection to the sea. From a young age, I have been drawn to the power and beauty of the ocean, and it was only a matter of time before I began capturing its essence through the lens of my camera.

Starting out by experimenting with shore-based photography, I soon realized that my true calling lay beneath the waves. Entering the water with my camera allowed me to capture unique and often imperceptible details that I found endlessly fascinating. For me, being in the water, at the mercy of the elements and armed only with my camera and my own body, is a thrilling and life-affirming experience.

Through my photography, I seek to capture not just images of the ocean, but new and unexpected perspectives that reveal something of my own inner life. Each photograph is like a self-portrait, reflecting my own unique perspective and my ongoing quest for beauty, meaning, and connection in the world around me.
