espresso

I just love photography as an art form. I find experimenting with different techniques very stimulating and also great fun. I mostly use a Nikon D750 camera and my favourite lenses are a Nikon 50mm f/1.8, a Nikon, 24mm - 120mm and a Nikon 105 f/2.8 Micro. Portrait and abstract photography are my preferred styles, although I also dabble in landscape, wild life and street photography. I live in a remote area of Zululand, KZN, South Africa, which means that I am fairly isolated from photography clubs and groups.

About

I grew up in the Western Cape in a town called Stellenbosch. Did ba BA degree and Teachers Diploma at Stellenbosch University. Taught history for five years to Grade 10 - Grade12 learners. Thereafter I was promoted to the Natal Education Department (Psychological Services) Married Celia Graham in April 1977 and went back to university the following year. Obtained my Hon. and Masters Degrees at the University of Natal (Pietermaritzburg) and was promoted to Senior School Psychologist and Head of the Dundee and later Empangeni Clinics. In 1992 I left the Dept of Ed. established a private practise in Richards Bay - KZN. Now retired and still married to Celia (40 years) We have three boys - All doing well and a joy to us.I bought my first digital camera about 11 years ago and basically learned through trial and error, as well as reading many articles on photography. Presently I am experiencing with different effects and light. We live in a town called Jozini as my wife (10 years younger than me) still wants to teach at the local school until 2020. Jozini is in the heart of Zululand and very rural. Apart from My wife and I there are approximately 20 other white people in the area. Every school holiday we travel to interesting places which we haven't been to before. After 2020 we plan to settle in the Western Cape near the sea.
