Although I am a professional photographer, commercial work is merely quite an enjoyable way of earning money, it is the images featured here which I take for myself…
Although I originally started in photography photographing insects, a subject I had an interest in, my subject matter has drifted more towards landscape, than in other areas like flower and still life. Recently I have found I am photographing abstract objects.
