My interest in photography started back in the early 90′s when I started shooting bird photography while studying. My interest developed further when I bought my first camera, a Canon T90, while working and managing game farms in the Lowveld. While working there I was introduced to underwater photography and there was no turning back. It took me a number of years to finally own my own underwater housing but since then, that is all I focused on for a number of years.
With there being little financial income related to underwater photography, I had to move out and broaden my expertise. My main feeling was to try keep it involved with water as I love the effect water gives to an image when combined with action. At the same time I was asked by friends to second them in the Dusi Canoe Marathon and this initiated my involvement in canoeing today. Now I shoot river canoeing, and surfksi racing as my major sporting interest. But as time goes, I have become involved in other sports as contracts come in. These have included beach soccer, mountain biking, trail running and lifesaving to name a few.
With my love for the bush still burning deep, I felt to combine all my passions by offering my services to the Hospitality industry. This afforded me the ability to photograph in the environment I love so much, the great outdoors!
