An aspiring Director of Photography who has experience producing short films, documentaries, music videos and promotional content. Most recently, I was the cinematographer for Castus, a short film I co-wrote with fellow UWE student Klajdi Ymeri. I enjoy creating bold, colourful imagery with a desire to portray real stories in a unique way.
