About Me

Comments Off on About Me

I am a photographer. I’ve been clicking shutters since I was a young student back in ’93, when I had a Ricoh camera that was so busted, it only worked when you held it upside down. I specialise in head shots, product photogrpahy, people shots, fashion and glamour, beauty, that type of thing. I’m a studio guru. My work in studio lighting is unparalleled.  They call me “the light whisperer”.  Which is kinda nice.  If you need a photographer who can do anything in a studio -fashion, editorial work, catalogue work, Call me, I’m your guy. If you need wedding photos… not so much.

 

Taking photos is not just what I do, it’s what I am.

 

My photography is as essential to me well-being as breathing. I mainly take photos of people, and I primarily work in the studio. I’ve found out that I’m a good teacher, and I love helping others achieve their dreams in photography.

 

Away from the camera I enjoy cricket, cooking, drinking (good!) beer, and being lazy. I live with my wife, Andrea, in Johannesburg, South Africa. I have two dogs, Hungarian Pulis named Laszlo and Laika (That ball of hair on the right is Laika).  I’m also the proud owner of a stuffed hippopotamus named Felicity who loves cricket more than I do.  Don’t ask.  

 

And above and beyond that, I published my first novel in May 2018, and working on my third book. 

 

My Influences

Join a band and you are asked “who are your influences”. But be a photographer, and ask “who are your influences” and most people will just gawp and say “I don’t know, I just like taking pretty pictures.”

 

Conversely, I know exactly who my influences are. Who inspires me to do what I do. The masters of the craft. These master light-shapers who have created images that has caused me to look at their pictures and say “wow, I wanna do that”.

 

This is my homage to these people I admire.
