I was born in South Africa, then moved to France where I lived for almost half my life. I now reside in Knysna (Garden Route of the Western Province in South Africa). I consider myself a citizen of the world, as I have had the privilege to travel extensively around the world. I enjoy the wide-open spaces and easy living found in Africa but still appreciate the finer ways of living in France.
Photography has always been a hobby of mine since 1968 (My first camera was a Pentax K1000). However, it is now a passion that gives me so much pleasure but I still have so much to learn. It is an on-going work in progress. Photography is what the holder behind the lens sees. I try to capture and convey the moment forever. But my eye may not see the same light change, shadows or nuances that the end user sees. Hence it is an art form and to be appreciated as such.
I see the world in a hugely different way when I am holding my camera. Details become more important. Light becomes the utmost importance. The mood is brought out.
I am privileged to live in a part of the world where there is a never-ending quantity of subject matter to shoot. Be these seascapes or landscapes.
Please enjoy my humble collection and remember, it can only get better!
