My photography business was borne by a young boy’s passion for photography. To fuel my burgeoning interest, my mother decided to buy this tenacious tween his first camera, an Olympus OM 20, which today continues to hold a place of pride and joy in my collection of cameras. Her act of faith marks the start of a love affair that spans some three decades, a time in which I continually discover and develop my photographic pursuits.

An invitation to a ‘free’ family portrait session 20 years ago sparked the idea to start my own photography business. I did not like the artifice adopted by the studio, particularly over the fact that I could never get back the negatives of the shots taken of his family. Another family portrait session, this time with my extended family to commemorate my parents’ silver wedding jubilee, also left me similarly disillusioned. So, I decided to embark on my own photography business, driven by my need to provide a service that I myself can be happy to engage.

So now, 18 years on and having my works displayed on multiple magazines and sites affirming my works with families, couples, maternity, and newborn photography. I always still learning new styles and methods to improve my art from some of the best out there.

I have mastered (or at least I like to think so) Photoshop and compositing to include touching up all my personal artworks and this is not just simple beauty retouching but also creating a whole new world, where surrealism meets art.

I love to see the smiles on my customers' faces both after I show them the captured shots on my camera screen and fascination after I’ve presented the improved touched-up shots to them.
