What inspires your own work?

Attention to detail and the desire to produce the highest quality results have been the driving force behind his images, led primarily by the quality of light and the mood rather than the subject itself he has explored a variety of different genres. Still with the same passion for the medium, he has in recent years, been leading photographic workshops across the country, passing on his knowledge of the medium.
