Extrospective Photography is the science, art and practice of creating durable images by recording light electronically (digital photography) or chemically (photographic film) of objects and events external to the photographer’s own mind influenced by their own conscious - their thoughts and feelings.  In essence, the art of capturing and displaying images of external observations through the eyes of one’s own self-reflection.

Extropective Photography provides a privileged access to the world as seen by a photographer, a rare insight into their mind, and their unique way of experiencing the world around them.


Photographers share with us a single frame of time; a moment captured and kept for posterity that otherwise would have fleetingly passed us by. Each image is an insight, not only into a moment of time and life itself, but also a window into the photographer's own psyche, vision, motivation and inspiration. Photographers offer us the insight of walking in someone else’s shoes, enriching our perception and increasing our understanding of the world and life.


While growing up, I was fortunate enough to travel and discover the world with my family and in the process becoming fascinated with the beautiful complexity of life, nature and mankind alike. Throughout my first career in Hotel Management and subsequent career change into Marketing Management I am able to continue exploring this wondrous world. Over the years, I have lived on and traveled through four of our seven continents and my wanderlust and interest in photography has only continued to grow.


These last few years, I have delved into the art form of photography, learning from talented professionals I now have the fortune to interact with and to call friends. 

I hope that my own humble foray into this medium will allow me to share my own vision of the world and impart on you an emotional experience of your own.
