Photography is my calling, my profession and all I have ever wanted to do since stumbling upon an old camera in a pile of rubbish when I was six. For the next 40 years I shot, developed, imagined, pondered, created and retouched, won some awards, joined some associations, jumped into the water, built a vast studio, shot film, found love, got married and shot some more.
