When I think of my childhood, things that pop into my head are rainy summer afternoons, my beloved cat Snoes , and – my three cows. Yes, three cows! Growing up in South Africa I was free…we played in fields, we built tree houses. I gained battle scars from those BMX and skateboard sessions, I kissed girls, broke hearts, and had my own heart broken in return. I hated school yet I always worked hard for the things I loved. I also had another love – music. My love of music led me to becoming a DJ and mixing some records for Gallo Records.

I felt loved, always.

Dreams of adventure led me to Ireland, and to a freckle-faced lass from Dublin who kissed me to ‘Don’t Cha’… and I fell in love for the last time.

Photography is an adventure, one I fell in love with while on another adventure travelling throughout the Middle East. We value photographs because of how they make us feel. Photography allows us to cheat time in the only way we can, one photo at a time. Moments are so valuable and a photo of one moment is like a time machine that brings you back and forth. It has the power to make you smile, laugh, cry. Moments will live forever this way.
