About the Mentor

I am a hobby photographer, who started way back in the 80’s with a Mini Hot Shot camera! The interest lay dormant for many years, until I could rekindle it with my first DSLR in 2012. Since then I have been shooting, exploring and learning all genres of photography. Why photography? Because it uniquely blends the understanding of the physics of light with aesthetics of composition, the skill of using technology and tools, and the knowledge of diverse subjects from wildlife to geography, or astronomy to people and society; into creating works of art! I also love it when at the moment of taking a picture, my heart may skip a beat, I hold my breath, and the entire world seems to stop and shut off! That is when I capture the moment for all eternity.
