When I was very young my dad took lots of photos. I remember he used our bathroom as a dark room. We had boxes of photos and I’d spend hours looking at them. I have always been quite creative and since I had my own camera I kept taking lots of photographs, but never got around to understand how a camera works. I even bought a 35mm SLR so I could take ” better photos” but gave up trying to understand it and used it in Auto mode.

Then years later someone told me about a photography course nearby. I went for it and took a course with Rob Irving. He made me realise that it was not as difficult as I thought and with his enthusiasm, encouragement and support I could see the first results.

What do I love about photography? Well, it makes me happy. I always try to capture an ordinary moment and make it extraordinary. And when that happens it brings a smile on my face.
