My love for photography was realised back in the ’90s when my mother told me the pictures I took on my sister’s wedding were so good that she wanted them to hang in her family wall of memories.
I started my journey of taking photography seriously when one of my friends introduced me to a professional photographer, who agreed to mentor me for a basic start. I borrowed cameras from family and friends and kept learning.
Photography is like some special feeling to me. It’s like meditation, therapy and something that calms me.
Photography allows me to tell someone how beautiful they are without using words. My camera helps me show others how to embrace themselves and how fearfully and wonderfully they were made by a perfect Creator.
“You can look at a picture for a week and never think of it again. You can also look at a picture for a second and think of it all your life.”
When a moment in front of me appears to be particularly special, whether it be by beauty or experience, I capture it. I usually find a reason to justify taking that photo – symmetry, or colour, or contrast – and it’s my hope that my photography sheds light onto what I see and do on a daily basis.
