Travel and the desire to make the subjects’ true sprit shine through the picture have merged into a quest that started in the mid 90s. I have always been a restless soul. Traveling gives me a sense of exploration and seeds my mind with ideas. The joy I experience has led to a state of mind where I’m always contemplating the next trip. For me the true joy is in the travel phase and not always seeing anything specific. Photography became a means to record the experience and keep a diary. Over time I have improved the quality of both my equipment and images. But, only a few images truly meet my expectations.
This page serves two purposes. I showcase some of my images for friends and also to advertise my services.
Travel to Africa is an opportunity to experience the amazing wildlife, birds, landscapes and warm hospitality. Ninety nine percent of all humans alive today are related to a people from the Rift Valley in Kenya. Visiting the valley makes for an incredible photography experience. Learning landscape and wildlife photography in this environment is unparalleled. But then one can also just take a moment and soak up the energy of the plains. Watching a herd of elephants pass by within a few meters of the vehicle or an African sunset are haunting moments that remain with us. A more challenging experience is to visit the mountain gorillas in Uganda. Safaris can be shared with set agendas or customized, provided the group consists of six or more people.
I’m available for the standard photography services including event, portrait, kids and weddings. A recent creative adventure has got me into boudoir and art nudes. At one point I almost walked away from the nude photography due negative publicity, especially in the media. However the models and amateurs who find it liberating as a form of expression has convinced me to keep developing my skills. Selecting themes and the collaborating on projects is a lot of fun and sometimes produces surprising images.
I’m currently based in Ottawa Canada, but traveling to locations is not a problem. Feel free to contact me for further information or quotations.
