He Is currently completing his masters degree
He took up what started out as just an exciting hobby after working with other creative mediums such as art, design and web media for a number of years. He undertook a number of successful and pleasing projects, including weddings (ceremony & reception), portraiture of people & animals, and promotional shoots for bands and groups, fine art and commercial work too.
In 2003 & 2010 he suffered neurological issues that left him partially sighted for nearly a year as well as with movement problems. His eyesight has now returned. So, he decided to challenge this problem, and take up photography as having had to live without it, he now values his sight and vision and likes to share it with others.
That’s the reason why his project was titled ‘Blind Luck’.
