My Bio I love taking photos, ever since I saved up enough money from my paper route during junior high to buy a Pentax SLR which had been stolen from a camera store, recovered by the police, and then sold at a discount by the same camera store!

I had to part with my SLR when I graduated from university, and then the passion for photography began to fade. It wasn't until I got myself a nice Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ50 in late 2006 that the passion has started to burn strongly again.

The photos in my books and on my Web site are the result of that passion and my artistic photographic vision. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
