|This is where I try and give you a sense of who I am. Just who is this person who might be doing your photo session, or photographing your wedding. Who is this photographer who is maintaining this site; who wrote these books. I have to simultaneously intrigue and appear cool. But I can’t tell you I’m cool. There’s the quandary.
I can keep it to the factual:
I also maintain a very active website for photographers. I teach workshops and seminars on photography. I have written three books on flash photography, of which two have been translated into Polish, Portuguese and Chinese. This probably means I can describe myself now as being ‘internationally renowned’. I’ll take it. It sounds good.
|A few background details about myself:
I’m originally from South Africa where I worked as a TV Broadcast Engineer. Then in 2000, my wife and I decided to settle in the USA with our daughter – and I have pursued photography here as a full time career since.
What drives me as a photographer:
I get real pleasure from sharing the happiness with the people that I photograph, and knowing that I’m creating images that will evoke wonderful memories for a lifetime. (By the way, this is the most plagiarized paragraph from my bio. Seriously.)
And there you have it. This is me.
Drop me a note if you want me as your photographer, or want more info about my work and photography services.
I’d love to hear from you.
