“I've always had a deep seated drive to change the way that we see the world.”
MY CREATIVE LIFE PURPOSE
Without passion, without purpose….we are nothing.
I began my photography journey when I was 12 years old. My first love….nature and landscapes saw me falling in love with the beautiful places around me and seeking ways to remember them forever.
Ever since, it is rare for me to journey afar without my camera.
My “Creative Life Purpose” has grown and shifted since I took my first photo and some 30 years later it remains multi-faceted and fluid, shifting and evolving as life takes me on its own special journey.
Today this Creative Life Purpose sits within the realms of:
Telling powerful real life stories,
Documenting every day life, in all its ups and downs,
Capturing the natural world and beautiful places around us, and
Creating abstract art through unique and “out of the box” creative thinking.
