2ND PLACE: IPPVA DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR 2019
FEARLESS AWARD WINNER (GLOBAL)
TOP 100 WEDDING PHOTOJOURNALISTS (GLOBAL)
When I was 10, I sometimes hung out with my next door neighbour. Micheal was in his 70's and was an amateur photographer with a dark-room in his attic and a pile of old film cameras that he let me use fairly freely. He also had a proper telescope and used to take unbelievably good Astro-photos.
Over 2 decades later, I meet and marry Annie. Annie gives up a successful career in corporate law to focus on her passion of photography. She's now an award winning wedding photographer and the idea that she used to work in Law is a long gone memory. I ran my own company and I kept up with photography (Astro-photography but also landscapes and travel). I also took up a bit of Videography.
Then, in 2015, little Max comes along and photography takes on a whole new meaning to me. I see how fast life moves and have a new appreciation for capturing moments and people. I also start shooting weddings with Annie and really get into it. I'm a fairly hardcore "wedding photojournalist" meaning that I love the unstaged, natural moments that happen at weddings and the challenge that it is to get them.
2019 now and Micheal has long since left us. I haven't taken an Astro-photography picture in a few years and instead, my photo catalogue is now pretty much just Wedding photography, Max, Annie & some Jiu Jitsu photos (I like Jiu Jitsu).
I also still have a pile of old Film cameras I like to play with from time to time and I'm happy out.
