Amused with myself and life. I said a few days back that I would have a photographic-hiatus for the next 12-18 months, all while our first child grows up. Yet it appears that cannot happen, or may not start for a while.
Read on to discover how busy my photo-calendar is right now:
1. Last night I had such a great time shooting people at the Hotel Richmond that I’m keen to do more event and people photography.

I’m looking forward to it, they are nice people so it will be fun to organise and shoot lots of different styles of
So much for having a photo-hiatus. But I don’t mind. Being able to hold a camera in public is not only fun, it is good for the soul. Or at least it is for me.
