Acid attack is a form of violent assault onto the body with the intention to disfigure, maim or kill, the victim is harmed both physically & psychologically.If they do not succumb to their injuries, they now have to face life not only with their scars, but also with the social & economic difficulties, they are reminded everyday of the incident.This is a serious issue in countries like India, Pakistan, Bangladesh & now the UK.

I started my photography career 23 years ago & its been 17 years since I turned pro.I spent 6 years assisting 4 different photographers with their diverse specialities & skill set.Having being a professional photographer for the last 18 years, I felt the need for change. I directed my first fashion film two years ago & it was instant love. The expressions & movement in a human body made me fall in love with the art of film making.Some of my clients include brands like Unilever, Audi, Lexus, L'Official, Marie Clair, Harvey Nichols, Mac, Bacardi & Petis Filous.
