“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you are looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.”
Being a photographer is not just being an expert at understanding the equipment but also
understanding the subject – the person you are taking the photo of – and that is why the quote
above is so important to me, because it describes exactly how I feel when I take photos of
It is not just another photo, it is an experience; it is an exciting feeling when you finally get
those photos. You will feel as if you are on top of the world, because taking a photo is not
just another ‘job’ for me, it is my passion, it is my obsession, and it is my creation!
I have been taking photos in all manners and genres for over 34 years, and I have even
attained my FIAP – which is a fellowship of the international Photographic Association
FIAP. I am a member of a photo club, I am an international photographic judge, and I belong
to the requisite photographic body, the PSSA. So my ‘formal’ background has now been
introduced, just in case!
However, I believe, the proof is in the proverbial ‘pudding’…
Therefore, I ask you to go to the gallery – scroll through (as many times as you please) – and
when you find that photo that ‘gets you to feel’, then give me a call and we can create
pictures for you that will make you not just look at yourself, but will make you feel when you
look at them! So, start scrolling….
