Thanks for posing the question.

I studied fine art and qualified as as graphic designer. Worked in that field for a few years and finally made the jump to journalism ( I was a better writer than an artist), I became an editorial photographer with my first serious camera, an Olympus OM2. I later did a stint as a picture editor for an online agency working with archived material from the Bang Bang Club (a group of South African photojournalists who rose to fame in the 80s and 90s) as well as current news images.

Today, I feel my style and output was influenced by my experience as a graphic designer and working with top photojournalist content. And I appreciate good art.
