About Me

I was born in England and moved to South Africa as a child where I was fortunate enough to explore many parts of South Africa as my Dad was a traveller at heart and also enjoyed photography. My earliest memories of photography are my Father’s black and white images and this is where my fascination began.

My official photography career began eight years ago with landscapes where I took part in a photography course at La Rochelle Photography and focused on learning as much as I possibly could. I furthered my knowledge by joining the Digital Camera Magazine website forum and made some great friends all over the world.

Other aspects of my life that enabled me to become a better photographer were the other career paths that I had in my life. I also have a love for nature, so I love putting my clients in natural environments. Since I have fallen in love with photography, I have been amazed at the incredible way that people have received me and at being asked to contribute to various industries such as The British photography magazine and the Digital Camera Magazine. I have also been on the cover of Real Brides and blogs on Southbound Bride.
