“Having been lucky enough to have a school where photography was on the curriculum and a teacher who encouraged us to get out and take pictures, I have been following this passion for years.

“Architecture and landscapes also join in to help me create the pictures I want. Anything away from the standard point and shoot ideas we are immersed in.”
