Hi! My name is Ira

I don’t simply take photos, I realise vision and execute ideas in the my own unique, fun, and aesthetically pleasing way. I believe that photos embody emotions, which is why my shots always have a lasting, meaningful impact while getting the key concepts across creatively. I take my vision, my purposive approach, and my well-honed technical skill to craft captivating imagery that enthrals clients, empowers brands, and delights audiences of every variety.

I create films that are based in narrative, as I am an avid storyteller and an expert communicator. The content I create is laden with nuance, humour, and emotion as I endeavour to make the vital connection with those who view my work. Taking the elements that thread through culture, language, and identity, I craft moving images that leave a lasting impression. My films transcend language and culture, and connect with audiences of all different backgrounds.

I am an avid traveller, fitness junkie, and generally happy person. I have a six-year old long-haired chihuahua named Charlie who likes to sit on my lap to snooze while I retouch photos. I like retro sneakers, thin crust pizza, and the occasional roller coaster ride. I spend my summers in Italy, Christmas in the Philippines, and my evenings watching films with my partner. I love Ariana Grande, bulletproof coffee, and cold, sunny winter mornings. My drink of choice is single malt scotch.
