I enjoy the whole creative process from beginning to end and seek to discover and portray the world in all of it’s rich, intense colours and interesting forms, textures and subjects. I draw inspiration from the harmonious colour schemes often present in the natural environment when creating my Graphic Designs, or composing a Photograph or other work.

    nice work my friend – you caught him at such an improbable angle!! love the skaters in wait too!


  • Thanks Maggie! :-) I move around that place a lot as skaters change direction and skate different parts of the skate park. I normally don’t like to have people other than the subject in a skate shot but this day they were all over the place and when I reviewed the shots I didn’t mind.
