A passionate photographer, I have played in this space for nearly 25 years. My first encounter was the Photography club at high school, it was more of a social encounter rather than a pursuit of photography.

As life evolved and different activities attracted my attention photography was always in the background but not a priority. My passion took a turn when my first child was born and a desire to capture her growing in the best possible format was paramount.

This endeavour rekindled and enlightened the right side of my brain and you will see the results of this adventure in my gallery. It’s only the beginning as I strive to learn by experimenting with light and the tools at hand.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
