Overview

As a photographer I worked extensively for Rough Guides and Time Out, before diversifying and completing projects that also involved graphic design. My first book cover image was the photograph on the cover of Earthbound for Rough Guides (not the design), and my second was an illustrated cover for author Katja Meier. I make illustrations either based on the computer or hand-drawn/coloured sketches.
