My biggest inspirations are Old Masterpainters like Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Leonardo da Vinci and Vermeer, I love how they play with the light and shadows in their paintings and the technique, chiaroscuro, is something I like to replicate in my work. But I also like to go into details and explore fruits and vegetables with my macro lens but most and foremost I want to evoke emotions with my images.


The Tassara Castle is a unique place where we can gather as a small group and immerse in Food Photography. With a group limited to a maximum of 6 participants, this will be an intimate Masterclass, where I will unveil my knowledge and expertise.


I am truly looking forward to sharing this unique experience with you!


With love,
