I am a portrait photographer specializing in the performing arts. Theater , Dance, Cabaret and Circus.
After studying Editorial and Advertising Photography and working in the world of advertising photography in the mid 1980's....... I ran away with the circus. I spent 20 years being a cabaret circus performer on a slack-rope, while all along photographing other artists for their show promotional posters and publicity.
In early 2017, I spent two months volunteering with Serious Fun, Social Circus, Myanmar who on six days a week provide circus skills workshops for the disadvantaged children of Yangon. These groups include an Orphanage, Foster home, School for Deaf children, School for evacuated children from one of the many ongoing civil wars in Myanmar, A centre for children with learning difficulties and a Juvenile Prison/ youth detention center.
During 2020 100% of my performing arts photography commissions simply vanished due to Covid restrictions.
