About

I'm 30 and have been doing photography mainly as a hobby from about 2005 or 2006 but have also had paid jobs in doing weddings, family portraits and portfolio work for models and actresses.
I have never studied photography formally at college or university, it's all self-taught just because I have a passion for creating artwork in its various forms. I also can draw, paint, sculpt, graphic design, web design, act and write. I'm just creative at heart.

I began my photography with landscapes and nature in general because I think nature is beautiful and often overlooked while we sit surrounded by our "concrete jungles". Recently though I like to try and photograph people more than anything else to focus on a different aspect of natural beauty in the world and to try and tell a story in some of the photos or to try and convey a meaning.
