BIOGRAPHY
An African living outside Johannesburg, South Africa in a gold mining town called Springs. I find inspirational photography the most rewarding. Photo.net is a wonderful forum to interact with photography aficionados on many skill levels from all over the world and has re-invigorated many dormant amateur photographers including myself. I hope some of my pictures brighten your day as much as yours have brightened many of my days. I travel extensively with my wife for recreational purposes and my hand luggage is always 4 bodies and 6 lenses. Nothing else.
