Dancing Lights

There are no words to describe how I felt the first time I saw the magical polar lights dancing across the deep black night sky. Humbled and overwhelmed by emotion, I also felt honoured that the elusive hidden beauty had revealed.

When the world of photography captured my heart more than twenty years ago, it changed the way I perceived the world. I realised that experiences in life and the emotions we feel can be captured in a moment to live on forever in a photograph. Chased by emotions and haste, I felt like a child exploring an unknown world; there was no plan of where this journey would take me. The chase led me through countless styles, an exploration of the various influences in my life and a deep reflection of my own emotions.
