Biography: I'm a documentary and adventure sport photographer. My fuel, my drive, my being comes from capturing a precious split second in time - a time and place that shows how amazing this planet is. I feel I can capture images like these through adventure and exploration, getting way off the beaten path, experiencing rare cultures or paragliding at 17,000ft. I love photography because I will never be good enough - it is as much of a challenge today as it was when I purchased my first camera. For the last five years I have been the resident photographer on board The Best Odyssey. It's a sailing expedition to the wildest corners of the world. While the expedition is based around kitesurfing and paragliding, it also allows me to shoot off into strange realms and locations to work on assignments like declining whale shark populations in the Maldives or religious gatherings in India.For as long as I can remember, I've been mostly on the road. I haven't had a 'home', or at least one that doesn't float since 2003, and even before that I spent most days living in a van or on some crazy adventure. I grew up in Saudi Arabia. Over the years I developed more than a desire to travel, a real need. My horizon is something I want to explore rather than a line in the distance that remains still.I have been fortunate to visit over 50 countries in the last few years, often with some of the world's top athletes. If every once in a while I can capture the essence, the feel, the emotion of what we find and experience, then it's all worth it. A few of my clien - Friday 8th October 2010 (1 Picture)
