About me

I’m a photography student who is just finishing my 3rd year at UCLan. Although I have veered through many photographic directions during the course, I always found my self returning to and engaging mostly with portrait photographs.

Throughout my work, I am always looking at how I can connect my subject to the use of colour, as both a means of creating visually engaging images as well as a way of projecting feelings and emotions from how we as individuals perceive certain colours as visual cues. This takes inspiration from the concept of colour symbolism, also known as colour associations. An example of this is where colours such as red may represent ideas of hate or anger, however, the same colour can represent ideas of passion or sexuality.
