From a very young age I remember travelling the world with my parents and seeing them take photos. The way a photograph froze a moment in time captivated me, and still does.
It has been over 25 years now that I have been taking photographs.
Starting back in the film days well before digital was thought of, I’d shoot wedding, people, cars and bikes and did several overseas trips to the USA and Canada, New Zealand and Fiji shooting landscapes.
Completely self taught through my own research and trial and error, which in the film days was quite expensive ! Photography fulfils my creative side perfectly, blending art and technology, and gives me a sense of freedom, especially when out shooting landscapes.
Landscape photography has always been a passion, but photographing people is fast becoming a real love. I prefer to shoot portraits on location or out in the element, as opposed to in a studio.
Now I shoot everything from Landscape, Portraiture, corporate/Commercial, Fashion, Advertising, Weddings and Family shoots.
I also love teaching and run private workshops and also workshop tours, including 2 day workshops on the Great Ocean Road to 7 day trips to New Zealand.
Videography is also a huge passion of mine now and I will continue to purse that and offer this as a service.
