ABOUT THE COURSE’S
I’ve mixed it up over the years – having studied various fields from Cell Biology, to Computer Science; I’ve always been involved with art and photography but had a technical side which helps me today manage my studio. Having rarely taken the easy path in life, I believe obstacles present challenges to build on and promote quick learning. If I had to compare myself to a composer, I would choose Beethoven; things might not always come easily, and I believe my emotional nature comes through my photography with its dramatic counterpoint of light and dark images.
