Photography is all about the capturing of one moment in time. The trick - the part that drives every photographer - is trying to balance the narrative with the light, the composition and perfect timing. Without photographers, there would be less story telling, less drama, less imagination and the world would be a drearier place. With Black and White Photography, the removal of colour serves to heighten the challenge. Now, more than ever, the photographer must consider those key points, sometimes in a heartbeat, before opening the shutter. This is what drives me on. This is why photography and moreover black and white photography is my passion.

" Still, there is something predatory in the act of taking a picture. To photograph people is to violate them, by seeing them as they never see themselves, by having knowledge of them they can never have; it turns people into objects that can be symbolically possessed. Just as the camera is a sublimation of the gun, to photograph someone is a sublimated murder - a soft murder, appropriate to a sad, frightened time. "
Within the galleries section, you will find one limited edition gallery. Aside from this gallery, every image is available as a canvas print or a fine art photograph. The canvas prints are stretched over strong wooden bars and have a depth of 1.5 inches. All you need to do is hang the finished canvas. Every fine art photograph is signed, titled and dated by myself.
