I first began my adventures in photography through the gift of a small film SLR, given to me by my father when I was thirteen years old. It was an old camera, and had been used for many years as the family's only camera. With the emergence of digital photography, the camera was passed on to me. I spent many years photographing my own adventures and family holidays, and quickly developed a passion for photography.
Many years later, I began making films, and spending a lot of time behind the viewfinder of video cameras. I eventually purchased a stills camera to use on shoots, and it soon became a balancing act between the two mediums. I love filming, but the creative energy of a well thought-out photograph, and the ability to freeze time and create an imaginary world, really appealed to me. I now split my time between the two mediums, and enjoy both with equal passion.
The gallery contains a small sample of my travels and experiences over the past few years.
I hope you enjoy your stay.
