I grew up with a very keen attraction to photography from a very early age especially after pleading with my dad for a go his eos 600 slr which then was mind blowing to me I remember him giving it to me for my 7th birthday and that was It from that moment on I knew exactly what I wanted to be and do and nothing would get in the way. Haha I actually read the manual till it fell apart. I've always been a very avid reader and love devouring anything technical or about the arts.
I left school at 14 to go study at mancat college where I got a double distinction and a merit on my nd in multimedia. I tended to finish the assignments in the second week (after growing up in the print industry they were all second nature. Finally after placing in Shell I entered the world of professional photography and haven't looked back
In fact that first slr camera opened my mind up to an entirely different world. of which would become an obsession for me and then a very successful career that to be honest I had to pick just one thing I'd be able to do for the rest of my life. it'd be photography.
It takes allot of hard work endless nights with no sleep to get to where I am but I wouldn't trade it for anything. In Fact its really gave me a good work ethic where I'm prepared to work the hours to get the job done for me its not just a job its a passion thats been there for as long as I remember and striving for that perfect image is what I live for.
