About the Book
Aganda. 17 amazing people absorbing Turkey's Lycian coastline.
Gulet cruising at it's finest.
These images are glimpses of Aganda, our gulet, the places we visited and fantastic new friends I have made. From Kas to Fineke, from secluded bays to busy harbours.
They are also of the incredible Turkish people I met with whom I shared many a Turkish tea with whilst photographing them. Fascinated by my camera I was able to spend time in local markets, shops and barbers observing local day to day life - able to photograph freely.

Heaven on a stick.
My work is a journey through using my first SLR camera - Canon 400D. Prior to owning this I would take photographs of mainly architechture and landscapes. I am now drawn towards portraits, particulary trying to get to either know the subject - or not at all. No inbetween. I am fascinated making what may look like an ordinary everyday image into something quite extraordinary. I am using lyrical association with my books - as almost always I hear lyrics to particular songs to some of the images I take - hence the lyrics are sometimes displayed next to images. I have now purchased a Canon 5D MkII - and have a personal project -365 Days that is ongoing. I am also keen at creating photo books when I travel. My latest books will be of my journey to Kathmandu and Nepal to climb Everest Base Camp.
