Through Frog Lenses

My Hemingway Moment ©FrogDiva Photography

FrogDiva Photography celebrates the end of a decade with a revamped website and new galleries. It reviews my journey over the years in pursuit of light and stories leading up to my accreditation as a photojournalist this year. 

The collection of photographs on this site represent a dichotomy of selfishness and selflessness that seek depth in the light and the story. If you seek technical perfection in my photographs, you have come to the wrong place. I harbor an utter disdain to center anything in the image other than my own emotions, and consider the Rule of Thirds, apertures and shutter speed as mere suggestions. 

Many have asked what my specialization is, and my answers have never been consistent over the years, as my soul meanders through life at different speeds and with varying intentions. On some days I will reply that I am a social and documentary photographer, photojournalist at large. On other days my response is that I am a bohemian FrogDiva full of flaws and imperfections in pursuit of equilibrium.

Photography is part and parcel of who I am, not a skill learned for some certification or artistic claim. It is as human to me as it is spiritual. I apply minimal digital manipulation to enhance colours or clarity of the RAW photographs. NONE of the images on this website are collages or composites.

What I see is what you get, pure and simple,
a covenant between my soul,
the subject,
and the lens. 

Grab a cup of your favourite hot brew, get comfortable, and enjoy.
