About

I was born 58 years ago in the small town of Outjo in South West Africa, now Namibia. My wife Lola was born a day later in Windhoek the capitol of Namibia. After living for nearly 20 years in South Africa, we decided that we needed a change. We now live in Doha, Qatar where I am a pilot for Qatar Airways.

My photos are mostly taken from an aeroplane cockpit. It is easier said than done. You have to try and get a clear picture through a thick tripple laminated windshield with heating elements in it. My objects are mostly stationary, but my platform is not. So focusing tends to be a big problem. Then there is the problem of distance, or rather height, and glare from the sun. Flying at heights above 30000ft my objects are mostly 9 to 12 kilometers away. To get the objects nearer I have to use a lot of zoom. Not easy to get a good picture without using a tripod and that is impossible in the cockpit.

But at the end of the day when you look at all the photos, the good ones, the not so good ones, the bad ones, it makes it all worthwhile.

Lola loves art and architecture and will hopefully start posting pictures soon. She has a great interest in the architecture in Doha, Qatar.
