“A photographer understands light and aperture, an artist understands people on an emotional level. To be a great photographer is to make people realise how beautiful they are. " CJ
I love my work, and I think with anything, there comes a time where you want to give back. You can never stop learning, but for a while now, things have pretty much settled down now in terms of what works best for me. SO I started writing down some books which is really like baring your soul and your secrets and all the years and time put into my love of portrait photography.

I will be so honoured if you choose my workshop because it means somehow I have inspired you. In return I offer you my knowledge, enthusiasm and ‘open book’ attitude to help you grow as a photographer.
Do you look at your pictures and wonder why they look like snap shots and not like those photographs in magazines? Do you battle to get sharp, focused images? Have you always wanted to take better pictures of your children or thought about starting a photography business? Are you a professional photographer who requires some inspiration to take your work to the next level?
It's time to get snapping and be guided in a practical way with me helping you as you shoot.
