    As a graduate in design, my primary focus has always been on photography, with my thesis dissertation centred on Conceptual Photography. For nearly 15 years, I have delved into various genres of commercial photography, encompassing nature, conceptual, family, and newborn photography. However, my passion lies in documentary photography, while I also enjoy doing street photography and portraiture as recreational pursuits.

    Arches is considered a dark sanctuary meaning using light painting is not allowed. I went to do Astro Photography in June of 2021. This was taken approximately 2am when the Milky Way rose to the center of the arch. While it is a dark sanctuary, someone was hiking on the other side with a headlamp giving me just a touch of light painting to outline the arch. I held the wide angle lens open approximately 13-seconds, ISO 1600.
