"I have an understanding, a passion for image, for visual representation, and for colour and light. It fascinates me that the natural play of light from the sun can have so many effects and illuminations as it touches the Earth. Sometimes hard hitting and sometimes softly caressing as it penetrates the atmosphere in an infinite dance of photons, temperatures and colours.  The interplay of that with lens and eyesight, and human psychology reminds me always of the inner universe and connects me to the wonder of creation. Capturing light and vision for me through photography is paramount to how I have lived my life, and offering my own humble contribution to others is an exciting pleasure."
