I am married and am extremely lucky to share share an avid interest in all forms of photography with my husband, Mervyn. My interest in photography started in the 1980's while still living in South Africa. Since moving to the USA, the hobby has become a passion. I belong to camera clubs, and have served as president multiple times.
A few years ago, I joined a group of likeminded photographers where fine art is the focus. Our format is to present our work, looking for a meaningful and proper critique. It is a constant learning process. This group has taught me to love and see the photographic art of monochrome, which I now really enjoy.
It seemed to be a natural extension of my photography to try infrared. I recently converted a Canon 20D and am eager to hone this new skill. I know I have a lot to learn and look forward to interacting with this group.
As an artist and a photographer, I try to look at subjects that are fairly ordinary and use my ability to transform them into something extraordinary. This is my goal when I'm creating images.
