BEHIND THE LENS
I have been taking photographs since my teens and come from a strong artistic background. After attending various courses I started doing work for family and friends.Through this I gained a wealth of experience in a range of photographic genres.
I take pictures as a way of capturing the present and ensuring that special moments live forever in our memories.
Taking photographs requires complete attention to the present moment. Over the years photography has become my personal therapy and as such I am driven by a passion that has shaped my lifestyle and the way I see the world.
If you are after photoshopped perfection then I'm not the person you are looking for. I love the feeling of a naturally captured moment and the spontaneity and emotion of real life as it unfurls.
Over the last few years wildlife photography has become a huge part of my life and there's nothing I enjoy more than spending time out in nature getting glimpses into a world most people don't get the chance to witness close up. I love that through sharing these photos I can increase awareness of our wonderful wildlife and hopefully encourage a desire in people to protect our increasingly fragile natural world.
I photograph anything from family occasions, to community events and festivals. Live music and babies hold an extra special place in my heart, I love to photograph both, but maybe not at the same time!
