"Two of my great passions in life are travel and photography. It is an amazing experience to observe and photograph such varied cultures and I see it as a great privilege that I am able to share the beauty and diversity of the world I've seen with others. The images taken by other photographers have inspired me throughout my many adventures, so now I hope my own contributions will inspire others to go out and see the world for themselves.

My philosophy is to take positive photographs highlighting the best a place has to offer, whether that is the vibrancy of the landscapes or traditional costumes, the warmth and
friendliness of the people or the architectural grandeur of its ancient monuments."
