– I consider myself to be a photographic enthusiast with a passion for depicting ordinary as extraordinary. I come to the party with only a diploma in Freelance Photography and a keen eye. I don’t believe in the “rules”. I use photography to show the world as it is seen through my eyes, my images are windows to my thoughts, sometimes in Black and White, other times in technicolour.

I see beauty everywhere and almost every sunrise makes me smile. Every day brings something new. Every day brings some kind of inspiration. Beauty lies in the simple things. I like to capture it all. I want to pull the inner beauty out. I have a small thing for toys and bringing them to life in pictures, I don’t think we play enough.

When not behind the looking glass, I am listening the ramblings of my son, putting thoughts to paper or just spending some time enjoying the company of my small yet awesome family.

  • Getting Inspired – The Journey
    A few weeks ago, I wrote about a creative block. I wrote about a few ideas I had to help me find my “Mojo”. I thought it time I write a follow up on what I have been up to since my journey to find the infamous “Mojo” started.

    I have been keeping a journal of my ...

  • Help me find my Mojo.
     
    I have been the lucky winner of a creative block. For some time I have felt that my photography has been stagnating and getting decidedly boring. I know that I don’t stand alone. It is not uncommon for people to feel uninspired. To be honest, I am not sure where I lost my way. It ...
  • Review: Light It, Shoot It, Retouch It – Scott Kelby
    ‘Light It, Shoot It, Retouch It’ is another brilliant addition to the Scott Kelby book collection. Those who are familiar with the acclaimed author know that his books are always detailed, informative, and useful.
    My first impression (when I looked at the caption on the cover: “Learn Step By Step How to Go from Empty Studio ...
  • Time Thieves
    The inspiration for this article comes from another that I recently read and identified with. I have had many conversations with people in the photographic, as well as many other industries related thereto. All of them came back to me with the result that the nail was hit on its flat, round head: time ...
  • The Joburg Photowalkers
    I have been going into each space in my head to find some ideas for an article. I have certainly taken my merry time in getting down to finding something to write. For someone who usually has so much to say, I was, for once, at a loss for words. While on a photowalk a ...
  • I don’t Care if the Sun don’t Shine We seem to love the cloudless, sunny days, the ones that are hellish hot. When we are at the beach, our smiles fade away as the clouds come over because that is just not beach weather. What I did realise on a recent trip to the Coast is that the cloudy, stormy looking days were ...
  • What Makes a Good Photograph? One of my favourite things to do is watch people. I like to observe them, inspect and sometimes, on the rare occasion, even listen to them (that said in a very tongue and cheek manner). One of the things I like to get is opinions; we are always entitled to them and I am always ...
  • Sorry, NO camera’s allowed! After reading Sfiso’s article on ‘The Unwelcome Camera‘, I wanted to write a follow on from a slightly different perspective. I experienced something unusual while having breakfast at a popular coffee shop. Those who know me, know that I capture my days in pictures. I do this so I can have something to help me ...
