I have always liked to take pictures, but in 1980 I bought a Canon A1, a top of the line SLR camera and really began taking photos seriously. I also started a career in carpentry at the time and documented my work in photos. That work led to my architectural photography, which has been my bread and butter since coming to the Cape. I believe that the best photos convey a story or message, in addition to being a compelling image. When I came to the Cape I began several ‘Studies,’ examples of which I include here.
