Originally from South Africa, I started meddling with serious photography in the '90s when I purchased an entry level Pentax film SLR. Using this camera, I spent a few years exploring and teaching myself photography in its basic, raw form, learning the art of developing B+W film negatives and making prints in a dark room. Being a student at the time, the cost of film and developing proved prohibitive and forced me to scale down my photography ambitions for a few years to follow.
Once digital photography started taking off in a meaningful way, I started exploring its possibilities again in 2007, when I made the switch to both digital and the Nikon system, and was hooked ever since. My fascination, and new-found freedom with this media, coupled with the rise of digital darkroom technology, took off to a point where photography is now a passion of mine.
