I have a Portfolio with Iconic Artist Magazine, Milan. Also photographs showcased on PhotoVogue, part of the the Vogue Italia platform. I have won the Lifestyle category at International Black & White Child Photo Competition (2018), and also come second place twice (2019, 2020), and third place (2019). The winning pictures were all black & white child portraits. The pictures are called "The Embrace", featuring my son with a street kitten he rescued from Abu Dhabi called Miss Tiddlywinks. Also, "Safe in the Egg", "Winter's Bone" and "Lego Bath".
