The camera offers me doors into parts of the world and experiences I might never have know of, let alone seen. And it has given me the opportunity to meet any number of interesting people. I enjoy the challenge making a good photo in the tiny space of time that events allow, of trying to see and capture the special moment, of finding just the right angle in the right light - and of being just lucky enough to have all the pieces fall into place at the moment I press the shutter.
When shooting someone's event, apart from the formal portraits, my job is to record and not impose myself - I try to be the eye and memory of the moment. At other times, when people ask for direction, I can offer some tips on posing or in the case of engagement shoots some playful scenarios to act out - in any case I try capture the best aspects of the person as they are.

I would fish everyday if I could - fly fish or bait fish, from shore or boat, waist deep wading in warm water - a fish pulling drag is always a thrill.
