    Search for talent


    I am particularly interested in reporting the variety of life that surrounds us. Whether it is in the foothills of Nepal or the townships of Cape Town, I am interested in how real people live and how their private lives link with a greater problem or trend.

    I work in print, broadcast and still photography. I am particularly interested in spending long periods in the field to get the story.

    I like to report on a wide variety of topics. But ultimately, I want to take the reader or viewer to a place that they have had little or no experience or show them something common in a new light.
