About me

I have had photography as a hobby for many years and decided to take it further about 6 years ago. Evolving rather as a self-educated photographer, with many technical books read till late hours and “The history of art” as my photography “bible”, I love being a photographer as I can discover myself as a person, and hopefully let others see little pieces of me...
