"ESCAPE THE ORDINARY"
Let me tell you a little about me...
For me it started just under 5 years ago. Michelle my partner was pregnant with my son Carter and we were hit with a shock, she went into labour almost 3 months early.Being first-time parents not knowing what the future would hold, was by far the hardest thing I have been through.
Being told a percentage from the doctors of the chance of survival was an experience that I was never ready for.
Looking back I wouldn't have changed it for a different path, I wouldn't be doing what I am doing if it wasn't for that, I wouldn't have the same outlook as I do for that, I wouldn't be the person I am if it wasn't for that.
Carter who is diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and I truly believe this has given me a new perspective in photography, to capture the emotions, the faces, the connections of your loved ones. To create images of your STORY.
I was in a whole new situation, being a first time father I didn't know how I should feel and what I should do. What I did do though was pick up my camera and start documenting every moment we had. Being a father to this amazing boy has taught me so much and I truly believe I wouldn't be able to enjoy my career documenting each client's story as much as i do if it wasn't for him.
