When I borrowed a camera from my cousin a few years back, I had no idea that someday in the future,I’d have a lot more to owe him than the return of the camera. For it was the grip of an image and the click of a button that captured the world in parallel perspective for me, and a passion for seeing things in a different way clicked inside me until I was compelled to share these perspectives with the world.
Since then, I have documented the eventful and the everyday – both as a hobby and as a personalised service to an increasingly impressed clientele. My eye for capturing some of life’s greater glories supports my belief that photography was born with me. In fact, I'm banked my passions on this opportunity to share hope, happiness and peace with the world by showcasing everyday sights in a manner that makes people see what they don’t usually see.
This love and passion means there was no limit to learning and love for the craft – in fact, I taught myself the trade by experimenting with settings, scenes and styles. Then again, for someone who grew up in a little village of an ancient country that folklore and history are made of, you would not expect any less. The beauty of my natural surroundings – lush greenery, dusty dirt roads, snow-topped mountains, tumbling valleys, and creek beds and caves – meshed with old ways of living untarnished by modernity compelled me to, as I see it, share the beauty of God’s work with other people.
These days, and in entirely different surroundings having migrated to Australia in 2004, I am still on my mission. A collection of cameras means that there is no longer a need to borrow, but there is always something to learn. For me, photography is about capturing the moments that will never happen again, while injecting life in them – making them a true essence of our reality. Peace, love, hope and beauty – and everything that life and passion are made of.
