About The Winner:
I was born in Germany and raised on an apple farm in Ireland.
I became interested in photography when I was a fashion designer in Dublin as I had many opportunities to help out during fashion shoots.
It wasn't until my children arrived that I really started to work on my photography skills while documenting every moment of their lives.
I am mostly self taught but have taken instruction with the Italian Photographer Sara Lando and American street photographer Zack Arias.
I work as a freelance photographer in Hong Kong specialising in family and portrait photography. I also like to capture images of the city, the streets and it's people.
I’m an animal lover and particularly drawn to horses. I have travelled to the Camargue region of France to photograph the white horses there in their natural habitat.
I receive many commissions for my street and city photography and I am currently featured on a well known Hong Kong art website www.sooqcentral.com
