St Lucian born and raised on the island photographing "anything" from the age of 9, I left in 1979 to pursue a business degree at Arizona State University.After graduating, I moved with my wife to Los Angeles and worked in the banking industry in Downtown LA. An unplanned trip to Yosemite with a 1956 Rolleiflex ignited in me a desire to become a photographer and after seeing the work of Ansel Adams and Galen Rowell, my fate was sealed. Moved back to the island with my three year old daughter and my wife, who is from the Pacific Islands, and turned my hobby into a new career.
In 2008, with numerous awards, calenders and magazine covers to my credit, I embarked on a once in a lifetime project. This involved finding and photographing something on the island every day of the year which, as a group of 366 photographs, painted a picture of life as it really exists. After 15.000 photographs, a car accident, a bout of dengue fever, a broken camera and five broken lenses and no sponsor, I was able to complete the project. Published at Blurb:
