How did it all start?
I've had a strong connection and love for photography since my childhood. I remember always accompanying my dad in his custom-made dark room. I used to think there was some magic in the process of developing pictures. I was amazed to see how grey shadows appeared on blank pieces of paper and how they would turn into shapes, objects, buildings, people, and so on. I knew back then that I was going to be a photographer.
All my life I have been capturing those special moments of my own personal life, my family and friends. In 2008, whilst living in New York, I did my first commissioned assignment and that's when I decided it was time to turn my passion into my work. My special connection with children made me decide to specialize in lifestyle photography of newborns, families and children.
For me photography is and always will be a way of "stopping" time in its tracks, capturing and saving those special, precious moments and situations that will never happen again.
My passion for capturing images on film started from an early age. I was born on the beautiful island of Ceylon/Sri Lanka in the Indian Ocean and it was whilst living in Singapore in the late 60´s that my father gave me my first camera. With encouragement from my family I was able to start to express my artistic creativity through the medium of photography. Over the past 3 decades my journey through life has enabled me to travel the world extensively, capturing images of special places, people and events both on film and in digital format. I have been fortunate enough to have, accepted assignments and private commissions on four continents.
The journey and transition from the use of film to digital technology has also been an exciting one, and thanks to Nikon, Fuji, Profoto and Adobe an adventurous one too.
Naturally my photography spans several genres including: wedding and portrait photography travel, lifestyle, international photographic journalism, and boudoir.
· The Royal Photographic Society
· The Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP)
· The Society of International Travel & Tourism (SITTP)
The idea of working together manifested itself back in 2011, when after shooting a few photographic assignments together and after endless hours of conversation and sharing of our ideas, we soon realized that the synergy of combing our artistic styles and creativity would work well in providing our clients with a more exclusive service.
We take pride in staying current, and strive to improve by using the latest photographic equipment and technology, whilst embracing new products and props to allow us to be one step ahead of the competition.
