FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHER All my life I have been involved in photography, I have had a camera in my hands from the age of five. I found the camera uniquely fascinating in its ability to capture the moment. In later life, I have been inspired both from famous photographers, whom I count as my friends, to artists who excel in their technique. In photography I am constantly trying to blend both art and photography in one medium.
My goal is to share the beauty of the earth that means so much to me and I hope to you.
