I have enjoyed creating photographs for over 20 years. It all started in May 1996 when I came across a Little Bittern in Greece. The bird was close, and didn't move as I approached. At the time, I had a cheap, point and shoot camera. The shots that I got were okay, but I wanted to, and knew I could, do better. To help fulfil my dream, my boyfriend at the time, now husband, bought me an SLR AE-1 with various lenses. And so it began. I started taking more and more photographs. I went on photographic courses, joined a local photography club, entered competitions, and completed a New York Institute of Photography course. I took more and more shots. I now have a digital SLR, and the shots keep coming. Over the years I have tried different styles of photography. I like to explore and learn about new areas of the art, and enjoy the fact that it is such a flexible and versitile medium. Photography has become my creative outlet, and the way I like to express myself. My passion for travel and wildlife complement my photography so easily; it is the perfect combination. I hope you enjoy viewing the shots in my portfolio as much as I enjoy creating them.
Recent accomplishments (2014 to 2022): wildlife/travel presentations; calendar commissions; environmental awareness shots for a corporate initiative; commissioned to undertake a series of family portrait shoots; been an official engagement and wedding photographer; a selection of my prints were included in a charitable auction, which raised $1000 for an organization providing educational support to children from less fortunate and dysfunctional backgrounds.
