My love affair with photography began in 2003 with an epiphany. I was attending a photo workshop in Kamieskroon in the Northern Cape in South Africa with the celebrated Master of Light, Freeman Paterson. His slideshows of photographs depicting the extraordinary in the ordinary, changed my view on the world forever. Photography has become both a passion and an addiction and I can never stop seeing the world in images. I enjoy all genres of photography, especially architecture and architectural landscapes, long exposures ,wildlife and street photography. I have a passion for the classics and am happiest in a darkened theatre photographing ballet and opera performances. I have recently dabbled in the world of infra red photography and am enjoying the results. I love to travel and explore new horizons with my camera, searching for light and compositions to tell my story. To explore my vision and enhance my skills I have taken part in numerous workshops, courses and photo tours. I have learned from masters and peers alike and love to share knowledge with up and coming photographers. I have been blessed by being mentored by esteemed photographers such as Freeman Paterson, Lee Frost, Jonathan Chritchley, Martin Osner, Leon Oosthuizen and Hougaard Malan.I am a proud member of CapeTownPhotographicSociety and have held the Education and Development portfolio for the last six years.
