About Flying has always been a great interest and love the sensation and emotion it creates. My decision to take up photography as a hobby has taken me many places. The love for wildlife adds to the subjects I get to capture and takes me to interesting places. From the Airfield at Petit, Air Shows to Game Parks and open fields of Cullinan shooting images from an open door of a helicopter. I became involved with Group73 and this has opened a lot of doors to new opportunities and these professionals are doing amazing work from weapons training for the film industry to presenting the Bear Grylls Survival Academy in South Africa where I was appointed photographer on the inaugural event. Petit Airfield is a fantastic little airfield on the outskirts of the East Rand in Johannesburg where I spend a lot of time. This lead to amazing flying experiences with the Alouette helicopter pilots and had unforgettable  experiences with them. Frequenting the odd Air Show in South Africa is a good pass time and offers a great day’s flying entertainment. Some great photo opportunities come up and it is a joy to visit these shows. Some of my work has been  published in African Pilot, SA Flyer, Die Beeld newspaper, 2 editions of Kuluma magazine and The Leadership Magazine. My images also feature on numerous websites. This site is just a small window into some of my more memorable experiences…
