My dad always carried a camera under the seat of his car and was constantly taking pictures. I think that his example, together with poring over National Geographic magazines as a child fuelled my curiosity for the world around me.
I also do a good deal of street photography, which is my true passion. Having a slightly off-kilter sense of humour helps keep me looking for the unusual. I believe that mentoring is important so I enjoy any opportunity to encourage and train new photographers.
