I’m originally from the country and still hold those country values – I do what I say I’ll do and I show up on time.
I Grew up outside Singleton in the Hunter Valley. I worked as a mechanic, on cars and then bikes before shifting to earth moving equipment (Caterpillar) in the mining industry.
I’ve had a passion for photography since a young age and so I easily slipped into the role when I opened my first studio in 1996. Since then I’ve carried out endless projects and met plenty of awesome people.
In my first full year of business I shot over 200 portrait sessions and 35 weddings… And then things picked up. With a fresh and relaxed style and a rapidly growing list of clients work requests started coming from everywhere. I started multiple business including school photography, a modelling competition and even a Model agency.
In 2004 I switched to industrial photography and honestly felt like I was back home! It all felt so familiar.
I currently shoot mostly for clients who are involved in the mining industry. Most of the projects I shoot involve creating images capturing people and assets that show their purpose, vision and culture in action.
When I am not creating images for clients… I pretty much create them for me. My other passions are motorbikes and travel (Oh and two grown up kids that I don’t get to see enough of anymore), I very often get to combine all my passions, I have travelled by motorbike and created images all over the world. It doesn’t get much better than that.
