I am a freelance photographer based in Jerusalem, Israel. For over a decade I have been working on editorial and commercial assignments for a variety of international publications and clients,...
Happy to kick off 2018 with a fun story by Sara Toth Stub about Jerusalem's cocktail bars scene that I photographed for the January issue of Rhapsody Magazine, the luxury-lifestyle and literary in-flight magazine for the first-class and premier cabins of United Airlines.
I'm happy to be a part of a new photo exhibition titled "A Country in Uniform" in the exhibition hall of Masada National Park in Israel, alongside 13 other Israeli photographers, with this photo of Israeli soldiers at the Hall of Remembrance of the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial. The exhibition will run until 1 January 2018.

A story about tourism in Israeli settlements in the West Bank, that I shot for The Sunday Times. You can read the story by Louise Callaghan online (for subscribers) or head over to my website's commissions section to view more photos from this story, including unpublished ones.
Today marks the 50th anniversary of the Six-Day War. Half a century has passed since Israel gained control of the West Bank and East Jerusalem. Ahead of that date, I was commissioned to photograph a story by Dan Ephron for a special issue of The Washington Post Outlook Section which was published yesterday.
On a personal level, I’m thrilled and proud to see my photo cover most of the section’s front page and more photos featured on the following pages of the story, alongside photos by Linda Davidson, which covered the Palestinian side of the story, and a powerful image by Oded Balilty.
I’d like to thank Outlook editor Adam B. Kushner and especially Outlook photo editor Chloe Coleman for trusting me with this and for her guidance and support.
