About me:

Relax and have fun! I have a wonderful full time job and on the side I am very much part-time Author and non working photographer.

I used to do light semi-pro work, Independent Film stills, weddings, amateur models and some stock work. Those would be the highlights as I soon stowed the camera after a few years and now I just shoot for fun!

Photography is both art and can require much technical mastery to capture all the multitudes of possibilities life can behold to the eye. While I enjoy gear, some tech talk and knowing more to help make better pictures, I am at my best when the gear disappears, the scene creates passion and the minds eye is left to capture photos!
