Originally from South Africa, but often mistaken for an Australian, my career was centered around Information Technology until 2011, when I began transitioning to photography. Many of the same characteristics that served me so well in my prior career do so just as strongly now – perhaps more so thanks to the fact photography is a great deal more personal.
My specialty is event photography, particularly bar, cocktail, social gatherings, press and trade tastings, etc. While I do work from shot lists to ensure I am in position for any crucial or important parts of the event, I try to capture a sense of what being there was like: not only to document memories for those who were there, but to convey that sense to those unable to attend.
I also shoot portraits, small to medium size products, and offer fine art prints.
I am a member of the PPA (Professional Photographers of America), CPS (Canon Professional Services), and NAPP (National Association of Photoshop Professionals).
