When you grow up and live in a beautiful place, how can you not try to capture it and present it to others?

After father and husband, I see myself as a photographer. It’s far more than a profession or a hobby or even a craft. To me it’s a way of seeing the world every single day. I’m compelled by some lifelong urge to create images of the natural world that is all around us.

We all love the beauty of nature, and here in and around the Valley we are blessed with such lovely places. The greatest joy I get from my work is showing what all of us that brave the hours around dawn already know. Our own backyard and neighbourhood are truly beautiful.
