I first developed a love for photography in 1987 with a film SLR camera.  I loved capturing people in those unguarded moments and black and white was the perfect vehicle to see peoples expressions without the distraction of colour.  Film, paper and developer fluid were very expensive in those days so learning how to get those great shots in as few as possible was great training ground.

I learned the process from the technical side but never underestimated the power of understanding the human psyche to be able to tell their story with an image.

Images are everywhere in our world and sometimes we underestimate the power of their use.  They can elicit a visceral response or they can affect us on a subconscious level.  


Over the past 11 years I hade had the unique perspective of seeing people from behind the lens.  Understanding how to get the best out of humans is much more about psychology than photography!  


Over the past 3 years I've been working with budding photographers both teens and adults and educating them on how to use their cameras effectively.
