Photography is an excuse to get out, and get lost, where nature intended. A fact that stands true, even when one stays home.
The preservation of light
Welcome to the headquarters of my photography! Like musicians, painters and poets, there are many photographers, like myself, who do this for no other reason than pure and simple love for capturing and preserving awesome things. Life changes every second, and a well composed, timed and passionately taken photo freezes time forever.
Nature is... natural, and one of my biggest enjoyments, so much so, that I aspire to living in a mountain hut. This makes being out in the remote corners of the Karoo or in the expanses of the Cederberg an utter joy - and with my Nikon in hand to try share what I experience... .
I believe in ethical behavior and movement out there, leaving nothing, taking only photos. My practices will never influence the fauna or flora I am shooting, insects are photographed naturally and live, birds and animals in natural occurrences and places during minimum-footprint bush-craft camping.
At other times, my creative outlets are focussed on black & white photography and abstract images - to paint with light.
I hope thus, that you enjoy my work, my art and concepts in the way I intended. Never forget that photography is about the subject, not about the photographer. Please contact me, 'togs unite.
