Hello! Thanks for stopping by!

For over a decade, I have been figuring my way as an independent creative professional, a freelancer, a beauty photographer and retouching artist in Los Angeles, CA.

Formally trained in Commercial Photography (Melbourne, Australia), I believe in the power of a strong team of professionals who share a common artistic vision within every creative project.

As a photographer, I strive for a visually balanced capture that requires minimal post-production. Through pre-production consulting, my team and I help our clients achieve the best possible outcome in every project we undertake while minimizing production and post-production time and costs.

With my extensive experience in the beauty industry and deep understanding of makeup, lighting, and retouching, I also lead Avenue Retouching team, a post-production and consulting agency in the beauty ecosystem designed to assist cosmetics brands in creating visuals that capture consumer’s attention.

I am also the founder of Retouching Academy and a co-creator of all of the RA courses and retouching panels.

You are here because of my photography work, and I really hope we belong to the same category of people – those who aspire to be better human beings and creative professionals, working towards that goal every single day. If we do, please take a peek into my new blog too.
