About - I'm a self-taught photographer, focusing on Landscape photography, with a passion for long-exposure. I also like to shoot architecture and urban photography. I try to convey the feeling of the moment when the picture was taken, the way I felt, the atmosphere, to create an interplay between reality and illusion, pixels and emotions.
I wish I could say I started shooting because of my father. But that isn’t the case. He was a terrible photographer! It actually started a bit later when he gave me his Canon AE1 and I started to process my own B&W films. I don’t think I have kept many of the pictures from that time. But the magic was there, behind the lens or in the dark room.
Photography is a moment of embarrassment and a lifetime of pleasure.
The photo enlarger has been replaced by Photoshop but the AE1 is still around, quietly sitting in a drawer with all the cameras I’ve used since then. I keep them all, as memories of the people and places they shot. I still shoot with many of them but mostly with my DSLR and my 1990 Hasselblad, which I love.
My inspiration comes from champagne, music, people I meet, places I visit and the thought process of subconsciously looking at everything and anything.
