Often for me, the need to take photos can feel like a compulsion. Is it the mood or the angle of the light? Is it something deeper in the composition or the coming together of certain elements at that precise time and place? Will I be able to capture this essence on film?


My camera travels everywhere I go. I'm in awe with life and feel the need to record things that mean something to me. Occasionally a special moment can be triggered by a natural event, mood, time and place.


My endeavor to capture the perfect picture is relentless. Light can change so quickly and the special magic which you felt at the time can be lost forever.
