My love for photography started at a young age when I was given my first camera for Christmas.

Later this moved to me developing my own black and white photos in a make shift dark room with an enlarger station in our bathroom.

Digital photography changed everything for me and digital editing with Adobe Photoshop became my new dark room.

I have worked for many years with adobe products such as Bridge Lightroom and Photoshop.

With my interest in creative photography I needed to study aspects of photo editing using these products as far back as Photoshop CS2 up to the latest Adobe Creative Cloud.

I now give lectures and classes in photo editing techniques all the way up to high end editing in Photoshop.

I enjoy all aspects of photography and see myself as a creative photographer and enjoy fine art, portraiture, altered reality, composite, and monochrome.

I joined the Alberton Camera Club in 2009 and worked my way up to Grand Master, the highest level in our club and served on the committee for 7 years.

I have been fortunate in the past to have been awarded many acceptances, certificates of merit and over 50 Salons medals, and numerous other awards for local and international salons.
