About me:

Relax and have fun! That's my motto for photographers!

I have a wonderful family and 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 stopped working professionally after a few years and now I just shoot for fun!

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