“Two of my great passions in life are travel and photography. I have been fortunate to travel widely and it is an amazing experience to observe and photograph a variety of cultures, people and landscapes. I hope that through my photographs I can bring a little of this to the viewer and inspire others to enjoy the beauty and diversity of the world for themselves”.
