Bio... something about you. Including camera equipment and software you're using...
It was only in 2010 that I bought my first “serious” DSLR camera, a Nikon D90 en-route to Rome and was devastated when all of my camera equipment was stolen some 18 months later.
On encouragement of my wife, Rencia, I slowly invested and built up the tools of my trade.
I’m often being asked what I prefer shooting, and I can honestly say that photography is my passion. My life experience and being a grandfather of 2 all informs my photography and makes me more creative in any genre whether it is wedding, event-, nature-, city & landscapes-, street-, commercial or portraiture photography.
I love the emotions, the romance and all the sentiments that go along with wedding photography. Interestingly I also use this approach in all of the other genres I capture. I often get asked: “Are you a wedding photographer? I can see it in your approach and detail you capture.”
In all of this I (the photographer) am only a witness…..
My style of shooting is unobtrusive and relaxed. My aim is to capture the celebration of the love the couple have for one another as honestly and as authentically as possible.
I want to create images which will make you feel something.
When I’m not shooting/sharing wedding days with incredible clients – you will find me with my family, in the kitchen (just love sharing every culinary experience with my wife) or speciality coffee bars. You may say that I’m a bit of a coffee snob……
What clients has said of me: super professional, work ethic second to none, non-intrusive, discreet, images and album delivered in records time and deliver above expectations.
In closing – yet another quote, and this time from Karl Lagerfeld: “What I like about a photograph is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce”
I’m working on my quote. So watch this space……. 😉
For post processing I predominantly use Lightroom and my tools of the trade: Nikon D750 and d810, with an array of glass from 50mm f1.4 - Sigma 120-300 F2.8
