Ever since I was young I’ve loved photography and I was practically raised with a camera in my hand. It wasn’t until I moved from my home country of England to Canada that I decided to turn my passion into my profession. Photography has led me all over the world to over 60 countries, and, of course, it brought me to my adopted home of Santiago, Chile. Exploring the field, I’ve photographed a little of everything from gastronomy, fashion, and portraits to travel, weddings, and daily city life. I have even been published internationally in publications such as National Geographic, The Guardian, Revolver Magazine, and Reuters. I first came to Santiago on a backpacking trip throughout Latin America, and was supposed to return home once I reached Chile. Yet, without a return flight, I decided to stay just a little longer. My extended trip then turned into 4 years of living and working in Santiago. I stayed because I wound up loving this city. Its ever-changing streets are in the midst of an artistic revolution and I’ve really enjoyed being able to witness it. Inspired by the contrast and beauty of Santiago, I wanted to share my admiration for the city with fellow travelers. For me, the best way to do that is through photography. I’ve been hosting photo tours for about 2 years now and I love seeing what new things my guests discover when they start looking at the city with a photographer’s eye.


Chilean photographer and fine arts graduate, based in Santiago, I have worked as a photographer and a guide for many years. The dialogs between old buildings, rusty walls and the city inhabitants are my current line of study, for which photography is a powerful instrument for the mix media experiments in my studio.
