In art school, it was drilled into me that an image had to have a deeper meaning. The What and The Why if you will.

Then one day I heard myself talk and though "What a load of bull."
Now, I simply shoot. The images mean something to me or are a reference to something in my life, and that is what makes me truly happy.

Night photography is what I am (currently) obsessed with. The camera exposes so much more than the naked eye can see, just look at that sky! I love the vivid colours and the eerie familiarity of the subject matter. I usually go out and photograph my immediate surroundings and this lovely little beach hut close to my house has now taken on a somewhat creepy character...
