Capturing memories, not images

Memories are important

I'm a photographer of many talents currently based in Southampton, UK. I studied photography at Sixth Form and I am now at University studying Web Design and Development. In my free-time I like to photograph nature, landscapes, and vehicles, whilst professionally I enjoy taking photos of events and doing portraits.

I’m staying in halls at Emily Davies which is nice, the facilities aren’t great, but I got a large room and it was cheap. The course, Web Design and Development, is going …

Cambridge Meridian Charity Golf
