Life. What exhilarates you?
The feeling I get when I see the smile appear on my little girl’s faces when she has just accomplished something that she didn’t think she was capable of – the look of pride and achievement.
The love that is felt from my partner when I go and meet her after a long day at work or surprise her with a date that I have planned for us to have some fun or relax together.
The feeling of standing at a music event and closing my eyes when the band is playing a key part of a song and listening to the music and the crowd joining in without putting faces to the voices. These are some of the things that really make my heart sing.
Is there something in life that without fail makes you smile every time you witness it happening before your eyes?
For me, one of these occasions is the moment when I realise that the two people that I am talking to are absolutely without question Yin and Yang and completely and fully belong together and live for each other; this is the moment I know that I want to photograph these people forging their relationship into marriage. You see, for me, photography is not a job, nor is it something that I wish to use purely to generate an income. For me, photography is about soul.
Those precious split seconds of significance between loved ones, the fun, the bond with family, the intimate feelings that people have for one another – Human moments; that is what I want to capture and give back to you, composing, lighting and timing with the same soul that is within that very moment.
