How would you describe your approach to teaching?

I put myself in the position of the learner, I try to provide clear and direct guidance to allow students to build their own understanding and apply it to their own work.

What inspires your own work?

I consider myself a portrait photographer primarily. I seek beauty and simplicity within my image making processes, making use of shape, symmetry and technical excellence to inform my own brand of aesthetics.
