I was born and grew up in Cape Town, South Africa. I grew up in a fairly middle class home and was given an Instamatic camera probably at about 11 years of age. Photography took a hold and from there on I always had my camera with me, spending a fortune on film and developing and annoying everyone by sticking a camera in their faces. Thank goodness for digital!
Combined with my love of travel, photography is one of my biggest passions in life. I love taking photos of most genre’s however the elusive awe inspiring landscape or travel image really does it for me. Another love is newborn photography. The start of life, when innocence and purity is at it highest level. What an amazing time to photograph the beauty of who we are.
The following quote pretty much sums up my belief in what photography is all about:
“A great photograph is a full expression of what one feels about what is being photographed in the deepest sense and is thereby a true expression of what one feels about life in its entirety.” – Ansel Adams
