I’ve always been interested in photography and to this day its rare I don’t have a camera with me. I still have amazing memories of my dad working in his darkroom, the smell of the chemicals, the red light and seeing those images come to life in the developing trays – amazing, you could say it’s in my blood.
Everything I’ve learnt was either from him or my from own experiences. I learned the ‘what’ and ‘how’ in the days of manual film cameras over many years and long before being able to rely on taking non stop pictures with a digital camera in the hope that one or two will be ok. Through trial and error I’ve developed and honed my capabilities and style, formally recognized and verified at the professional level. This allows me to work with my clients, who in turn have the confidence I’m the right photographer for them.
I’m a firm believer that its not how expensive the camera, how comprehensive the package, how many weird poses you can conjure up, or for that matter how you describe your style that makes you a good photographer. Its understanding and being able to put into practice the principles of photography. Its also having the ability to deal with all kinds people, animals and even mother nature in every sort of situation. Remaining calm and in control is what makes the difference between someone who calls themselves a professional photographer and one who actually is.
I don’t follow the vogue or trends of ‘reportage’, ‘photojournalism’ or ‘casual’ photographer – I’m first and foremost professional photographer and simply capture the feeling of the moment, something I find my clients value above anything else.
By using today’s technology mixed with professional photographic experience, developed over 27 years ensures a natural and stress free shoot, that’s carefully directed, but in no way constrained by the need to capture the images you will always treasure.
Now you know a little about me, why not give me a call and tell me about you and what your looking for in your photos.
