“In the realm of the creative comes imagination, we would be empty without that ingenuity and vision”
I was born and raised in southern England on the outskirts of a small village. Reading about distant lands inspired me to travel and in 1984, at the first opportunity, I left the shores of home to experience the cultures and peoples of the world – an ongoing adventure.
In the years that followed, I sailed the Caribbean, hitch-hiked across America, found myself trapped in the Kulu Valley of the Himalayas by snow and landslides, stranded on a desert island off Thailand without food and water for 18 days, navigated the rapids and waterfalls of the Mekong tributaries in North Eastern Laos and chased after a burning steel T-Rex across Africa’s Tankwa Karoo and the Black Rock Desert in Nevada.
While studying 19th Century European art at the Szepmuveszeti museum in Budapest, Hungary, I came to the realisation that my true passion remained photography, buried for more than a decade after having lost 2 years worth of images in a theft. Through photography, I had been able to steal a little magic from various places through which I passed over the years.
In 2007 I came to South Africa to study at the National College of Photography in Pretoria, from which I graduated with distinction. My work has received over 20 awards in a variety of professional categories, including the Fuji Film SA, the Sony Profoto SA, and the Worldwide Gala Awards.
Based in Cape Town, I continue my travels across the African continent and further afield with my camera at hand.
