Originally from the Caribbean islands of Trinidad & Tobago, my Industrial background required regular travel to many countries nurturing an interest in cultures and their environment. Most assignments were in remote locations working with people of various nationalities, languages and cultural beliefs. Myself of mixed race growing up in a multicultural society, and the travels of my job influenced my photography as a way of expressing my thoughts and experiences.
In my studies of photography, I looked towards masters such as Steve McCurry and Michael Yamashita for inspiration. I appreciate McCurry's focus on the human condition and use of saturated colours. Yamashita's artistic documentation of the Asian landscape and culture guides my creative vision. I am equally passionate about post-capture processing work as it extends and satisfies my creativity.
Through my photographs, I hope to help people become more culturally aware and appreciate the diversity of the human race with a sense of peace and belonging in this world.
If there is a project that I might be able to help you with, please send me an email to "email@example.com"
