AUTHORI am a portrait and still life photographer and studio manager based in London. I shoot across a variety of publications, often with little brief, budget or turnaround time. That doesn't stop art directors and picture desks from being demanding however so I have become accustomed to being creatively fast-paced! I love to shoot on my own terms too, where I get the chance to explore my own ideas in greater depth. I aim to create arresting photographs often with a bold colour palette and a lighting style that is graphic and dynamic.
