When I received my first camera from my grandfather at the age of 13, my passion for photography began. However, it wasn’t until a debilitating spinal condition ended my sales and marketing career, that I pursued photography as a full time career. As I recovered from surgery, I picked up his camera again. It gave me something to do and as I honed my skills, I found a renewed love for it.

Aside from photography, another passion of mine has always been music. So, it was a natural step for me to begin shooting musicians. I have loved capturing the explosive, primal feeling of a live show, as well as the charisma of performers such as Lorde, Bon Iver, The Foo Fighters, Soundgarden, and Florence and the Machine. I relished the challenge that each live show provided and I was good at it, gaining solid work and respect in the industry.

Animals have also always featured in my life and while on a month-long trip to Africa in the summer of 2015, I realised that my lifelong love of animals could translate to something more as well. The combination of my passions, photography, music and animals, came together in my personal project “Pet Rock”. I was excited about shooting pets as rock stars, with my aim to create the same sense of drama and energy in my photography of animals, as I am able to get from live music performances. As I explored this project, it became the inspiration for Tame & Wild Studio. 

At Tame & Wild Studio, I specialise in capturing the unique personality of all kinds of pets and animals. Our pets are in our lives for such a brief period of time and in that time, they become a very important part of our lives. Their unconditional and unequivocal love bonds them to their family. I celebrate the love your pet has for you, and you for them, by capturing portraits and creating artwork that you will be proud to display in your home. 

I would love to be able to welcome you and your beloved pet to my studio.
