It all started in a 10,000 Watt radio station. Really!
I started my career in broadcasting and then spent 25 years in marketing communications and live event creation. I’ve been a writer, producer, Creative Director and eventually started my own agency which existed for ten yeas. I’ve always loved photography and was involved in hiring and directing many photographers for projects, but I didn’t start shooting seriously until I put a Nikon DSLR in my hand six years ago.
Today, be they photos of everyday objects or places, I love to capture transient moments that evoke a feeling of disquieting strangeness. Imagine an instance where something can be seen as both beautiful yet alien at the same time. That’s the end result I strive for – the opposite of what is familiar.
I believe the camera shows us that beauty can be strange and the strange can be beautiful. This mantra guides my storytelling, be it visual or written.
