I am a self-taught photographer and have been shooting for 40 years. I started as part of a high school project back in about 1980 in Bermuda shooting Black and White film and developing the images myself.
I do not put a label on myself as I enjoy shooting a variety of subjects. As I was fortunate to be born and raised in Bermuda and have now lived in the Bahamas for 20 years how could I not enjoy Seascape photography.
I am also part of the Bahamian Project (www.bahamianproject.com), a project geared at creating a National Portrait Archive of every day Bahamians making offer a positive influence on their country. I was recently appointed President of this wonderful project.
While I do call myself a Professional Photographer it has nothing to do with earning money as my photography does not pay the bills by any stretch and I am okay with that. My calling myself a Professional is based on my attention to detail and the vast knowledge I have accumulated over the years.
