More about me…

For me photography is all about light and composition.

The photographer that is skilled enough to use the available or controlled light to his advantage, is the person who will capture the best image. I have developed the skills to adapt to light. Therefore in all my work you will find that all the detail that should be visible, that should transform your understanding of the subject. Re-creating beautiful light and finding it naturally, takes a lot of skill and doesn’t happen by accident in any contemporary photo.

As photographer it is also my responsibility to bring composition into play in such a way that your eye will find it’s way effortlessly in my pictures.

Everybody states that they have a passion for their work and it becomes kind of a cliché. Failing another expression for this cliché, I must also state that I have a passion for photography. But not only that, I also have a passion for working with people and reflecting life. And that reflects in my work.

I’m originally from South Africa, and have received numerous accolades for my photographic artistry.  I have, among other, received the following awards:

  • Salon Bronze Medal: Montenegro DPA International Exhibition of Photography 2014

Currently, my life is all about the journey of photography….
