Praying at the Temple - Ulaanbaator, Mongolia 

"I have always loved travelling, and to be able to do that and combine it with my love of photography is a real privilege. Travel broadens the mind and makes you appreciate what you have.

My passion in my photography is trying to make a connection with the people whom I have met and photographed. Sometimes spending significant time with them before even getting the camera out of the bag, has hopefully helped me capture images and emotions in people that would have been impossible without this approach.

I prefer low, natural light photogaphy using fixed, fast prime lenses. I cannot remember the last time I used harsh flash, and a zoom lens rarely makes it onto my camera these days. I use Nikon Full Frame bodies, usually the D810"
