Personal journey:

I started out in 2006 shooting on a Panasonic dv camcorder documenting my first visit to my parents home town Accra, Ghana ( in West Africa). Since that trip I’ve never put the camera down. I gradually moved onto still and started collaborating on film projects as a cinematographer.
