Describe your approach to teaching:
I put myself in the position of the learner and 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.
