From the early age of 15 years started
doing more and more physical labour for extra pocket money such as
mowing the lawn 1/2 acre of it (felt like a more 4x4 lawn mower

for the farm workers and catching, dosing picking up to 400 sheep
a day.... not by bus but by hand...... loading and
off-loading grain trucks, building dams , also making
windmill stands, erecting fences.... injecting 800 to
1000 sheep a day which led to injecting thousand of hours into
clicking of photographic beauty, fashion, event, celeb sessions
and booking hours as model agent and scout and manager and
image building for others ....
