Photographers are people of few words, preferring to let their images speak for themselves. That seems to be the general consensus. But the truth is, I have earned most of my income as an editor and a copy writer, always doing photography on the side. Did I just hear you say, 'ah, an amateur'? Well, that's not exactly true. I did study photography and have all the necessary bits of paper.

Of course, in the end all that matters is the work and that is why I have set up this website. Most of the images I am showing here were made in the past three to five years, with the exception of some portraits, which were made in the mid-ninetees. I hope you enjoy this site and my work.
