Peaceful Moments

Growing up, I was always curious about how photographers captured the images they did and how they brought the subjects to life. This curiosity turned into a passion for taking photos when I was in my 20s and then into a career.



When I embarked on my first overseas holiday through Asia, the people and the places really struck a chord with me – I wanted to capture and hold onto the memories. One destination that has really grabbed a hold of me is Japan. On one hand, a place so steeped in tradition, with beautiful temples and natural wonders and on the other, a modern powerhouse full of sprawling cities, flashing lights and technological marvels.



Looking through the lens I am often drawn into the peace and tranquility of this side of Japan and I always hope my images portray this, drawing the viewer into the subject and allowing them to experience that same peaceful moment.

Japan never ceases to amaze me – it is always changing so I find something new to shoot every time I visit.
