It was with the birth of my daughter Layla that I had convinced myself (and my wife) that we "needed" a DSLR camera if we were ever going to take a proper picture of her. I was surprised that I had forgotten how much I enjoyed shooting pictures.
For most of my life I had some kind of camera from a Polaroid and a Fujifilm when I was a kid to different digital point and shoots later on. I really started to take it seriously and honed my skills while taking thousands of pictures of Layla.
I am trained as a professional chef and naturally I lean towards shooting pictures of food and food related things. This is a coming together of two loves in my life.
