About me

I feel like I have been a photographer forever and it feels good. I am mostly self taught and learned a lot from my father about the technical parts of the "craft" of photography. I don't have a particular favourite photographer as I find individual images stimulating and inspiring. Some of Ansel Adams' work is just awe inspiring and some of it doesn't work for me. That's the nature of art though...

I was asked once "what do I like to photograph?" and my answer was "those things that people either don't or can't see". I think this means that I like to photograph the small and insignificant things, the macro things, the beautiful things of nature. I like to find ways to show things that everyone sees every day to the point where they become "unseen" and make them interesting. I've also rediscovered the beauty of the Australian bush, the native orchids, the burnt bark, the dessicated (or drowned) landscapes and the strange animals...


By combining the technical aspects of pinhole and large format film photography and the beauty of Australia I want to build a body of creative, beautiful and inspiring work that will last beyond my lifetime.
