Learning to see beyond the obvious

Ever since I was a child, I’d always have a book in hand. My earliest memory of books was of my grand mother reading to me at bedtime and teaching me to read when I was about 4 years old. I still remember fondly the many folktales that read to me and as an adult, […]

Although I’ve picked up my first camera for almost ten years, they are still many aspects of photography that I still love and many aspects that keep me curious. One thing that I often do is practice my photography. In this instance, I am not talking about capturing images but practicing different aspects of my […]

Simplicity and Starkness of Black and White

“Black and white is mix of toughest simplicity and easiest complexity.” ― Vikrmn, Corpkshetra Striking photographs do not have to be of anything in particular, it is the way you compose them that counts. Bold shapes, strong lines, rich tones and arresting camera angles can turn everyday subjects into exciting images. The further removed from reality they […]

The Unexpected

If you’ve been in photography for a while, you will know by now that not all images are planned. I pride myself on planning and visualising my images before creating them. However, I’ve recently noticed that my personal favourites are the ones that are unplanned. There’s something about the unexpected part of this image that […]

The little things……

I received a message today from someone that follows me on Instagram that made me think about the little things in our lives. The little things that we take for granted. With each of my images, I try to share my insights, difficulties that I may have encountered along with any doubts that I may […]
