About me

This is my story

I’ve read a lot of photographer’s ‘About Me’ pages… there are so many amazing photographers out there who started shooting at a young age and collecting different film cameras. While sometimes I wish that was my story, it’s not.

I didn’t go to art school, or do a degree in photography. I didn’t pick up a camera seriously until my 30’s. I don’t do film. I never did film. But these things don’t make me any less of a photographer.

Who am I?

I’m a simple guy who enjoys life. When I don’t have a camera in hand, you’ll find me surfing, practicing yoga, traveling or just enjoying the Gerringong life with Kate and our pup, Tilly. My little family is what keeps me going… and to Kate I say thank you for your support and patience while I do my thing, and also for taking all these great photos of me on this page!

How can I help you?

So I’m a photographer. That doesn’t mean I just take photos – anyone can do that. My goal is to ensure that working with me is an experience that’s not only painless, but so much fun!

 

My expertise and experience will help you solve the problems you may not be aware you had, to make certain you are 100% happy with your images, and also the process of capturing them.

 

It doesn’t matter if I’m photographing a property, a landscape, a wedding, food or a product – I am my biggest critic, which ensures you get the best possible end result.

How did I get here?

I caught the photography bug while working for Parks Australia. I spent a lot of time curating a massive collection of beautiful professional photography, and was also given an opportunity to take photos on occasion. I must have had a bit of natural talent, as I later went on a couple of dedicated photography trips to Booderee National Park in Jervis Bay, and also to Kakadu National Park – simply amazing experiences!

Based on the feedback I was receiving about my work, I took a leap of faith and quit my job to start working on photography full time – at the same time moving to Gerringong, an incredibly photogenic part of the NSW South Coast.

While pursuing a career as a wedding photographer since moving to the South Coast, I’ve never lost my passion for getting out into nature and shooting landscapes or epically designed architecture. I continue to explore Australia and my passion for travelling fuels my creativity even further. I’m also proud to be a member of the Eco Companion community promoting sustainable travel and adventure throughout the world.
