Art has a very special place in my heart and mind; it is the cornerstone of my style and my way of doing photography be it on my food photography business or on my personal work.
Probably the thing that fascinated me the more from an early age was the way hands were used in art to represent action and describe what a person does for a living or what status it holds in a scene.

This is a personal favourite, A very powerful self-portrait of Mexican plastic artist and muralist David Alfaro Siqueiros.
And so on…
So it was just a matter of time and practice for this fascination with hands to adopt it as part of my style.
I love to pay attention to the natural beauty of hand gestures and poses:
None of these shots have been staged, prepared or styled. It’s all real and is a picture hunting game I like to play while working.
