It is all about communication. Here, my grandson and I have one of our deep conversations.
Photography is an integral part of my life. I got my first camera at twelve and have taken pictures ever since.
After I retired from the oil and gas industry, I have devoted most of my time to photography. The most important value I brought with me from my earlier working life, is that quality down to the smallest detail is of utmost importance for a good result.
It was therefore essential for me to to learn the trade from the bottom, both in practical and theoretical terms. It also means to have the right tools and understand how to use them in every situation.
In August 2018 I received my diploma for completing my online Product Photography Course with Photigy Photography School in the USA.
In September 2019, I started 12 months mentorship with Julia Anna Gospodarou in Black and White Fine Art Architecture Photography.

I am using a Canon 5D mark 4 and a Fujifilm GFX 50S medium format camera with a variety of lenses. For architectural work, I normally use a 24 mm tilt/shift lens in order to get the perspectives correct. I also have portable lighting equipment for most jobs.
