About Me

Photographer and designer, specialising in stage and theatre since 1987. Image creation for dance and theatre companies.
Photo books for actors and dancers.

I have had the great privilege of working with some of the finest dance companies and most brilliant dance stars in Europe and America. My Fine Arts training included graphic design, drawing, painting and photography. I also studied aviation mechanics, however it was upon seeing my first ballet (Bejart’s Ballet du XXe Siècle) that I became enamored of classical dance and went on to train (Ballet Nacional, Spain) and work professionally as a ballet dancer for over twelve years, with companies and freelance in Barcelona, Marseille, Verona, Madrid. I also spent several years working as an illustrator and creative in high-end advertising, where I was working with the best quality image processing techniques. I bring together this corporate edge and my passion for ballet and the stage, to my work with clients in the world of dance and theatre.
