I enjoy meeting different and diverse people and finding new locations. I also enjoy the technical aspect that is required to be able to photograph in difficult lighting situations

A fun fact about this photographer
I used to play the piano when I was at school and I played the organ in chapel. If I saw a piano in a public place I sometime would sit down and play a medley. There was one time when there were two pianos and I would play the same tune at the same time as the other guy did. I had no idea what he wanted to play but somehow I managed to play the same tune as he did. Usually it was the hit of the week. I gave up playing the piano after I left my country of birth.
