LD: How did you get into photography?
My most memorable shoot must be the first time I photographed the KAEM. Once again it came my way quite by accident. A friend of ours was running it for the first time and asked Brian (hubby) and I to join the crew. Somehow Nadia found out that I can take photos and asked me if I wanted to help them. Impulsive as I am I agreed, before I’d even realised the magnitude of such a shoot. I googled and researched ad nauseam until I just gave up trying to find out about this “athlete thing”. I decided to trust what I know best and convinced myself that the rest would follow. Little did I know how much emotion I would be confronted with during the race. Shooting the race opened my eyes to a whole new genre that I’ve come to love with my whole heart.
