business background is the field of Graphic Arts where he rose
from a compositor in the printing trade to a Director and owner
of a number of an International Marketing companies. He
developed world wide export markets for loose leaf products,
video packaging and character children`s IT products.
In travelling widely
throughout Europe and other parts of the world, both on business
and pleasure, Don has developed in a deep interest for other
cultures. He has witnessed at first hand the deprivation and
social needs of many communities where poverty is rife. In his
new role in enjoying an `alternative life style` (he
hates the word retirement), Don decided to make use of his
life`s experience in business by volunteering overseas to help
those who require some education in English to help them secure
jobs. He wanted to make a difference. He therefore volunteered
for 10 weeks in Salvador, Brazil in 2008, and a further 6 weeks
there in 2011, teaching young adults and caring for pre-school children.
His wonderful cultural, humbling and rewarding experiences are the subject of his first Book: “VOLUNTEERING
in BRAZIL, You can take the leap”.
Don has been able
him to use his photographic skills extensively resulting in thirty
nine vibrant colour images throughout the book that illustrates
the students, the children, the culture and the surrounding environment.
Don`s stunning photography,
as illustrated in
the book, can be summed up by
