The creativity and diversity of my images speak for themselves. A photographer for many decades, I enjoy the spontaneity of the "moment", what I "see" at any point in time. The subject matter is quite irrelevant. The "now" is what it's all about which means that I expect and want to photograph a wide variety of subjects, objects and scenes. When working with models, I'll have a basic, general plan, but the unintended will always happen. Photography remains, forever, exciting. I have often been asked about my studio name. The name is in honour of one of my beloved pets, a pedigreed Blue Cream Persian cat, A Bit Blue. I brought him to the US, but he tragically died from Arizona desert predators.
A constant theme in my photographs is colour. Though colour is everywhere in our lives and like breathing air, we often take our colourful experiences for granted. Credit my privileged life in a sea of Black African poverty for that. My poorer countrymen may not have had running water and toilets in their awful shacks, but they could at least paint their front doors red, yellow or blue or wear brightly coloured clothing. At least something was attractive in their otherwise miserable lives.
Some of my biggest projects include the Rugby World Cup 1995 (South Africa), promotion of the City of Cape Town for the 2004 Olympics, and World Cup of Golf 1996 (South Africa).
