I'm a commercial and editorial food and product photographer based in Dubai, having also worked on photography projects across Southern Africa.

My journey into food photography began in 2015, in a small Italian restaurant in the heart of old Dubai. Skip to several years later, I made the shift from a corporate job to fulfil my creative side as a full-time photographer, and 5 years later I don't believe I could have made a better choice. 

Seeing my photography evolve over the course of my career always has me thinking that I can't even imagine where the next 5 years will take me, and it's a journey I thoroughly enjoy. 


Most of my photographs are shot using artificial light, although I'm comfortable working with natural light as well. Feel free to take a look at my portfolio if you haven't already for more insight, be it food and drink or product photography.

Some of my clients that I have worked with include:

Accor Hotel Group, Mövenpick  Hotels and Resorts, Domino's Pizza, Modern Bakery, Balqees, Bonny, and more. 

Having grown up in Malawi - a small country in Africa - I find myself leaning towards a quieter lifestyle, and in my spare time you can find me by the beach with a book, and when I can, I opt to go scuba diving too.


Contact me if you'd like more information or to schedule a shoot.
