My personal work is heavily influenced by atmospheric optical phenomena; and my photography style is a direct reflection of my personality: creative, curious, adventurous, gregarious, passionate, enthusiastic, upbeat, patient, relaxed, and fun. I love to teach, and run my own photography business here in Melbourne teaching varying photography related workshops across Victoria, Australia. I also shoot commercial, event and portrait photography.
It's no hidden secret that astrophotography is my passion, although sunset and sunrise landscape photography comes in a close second. I like to push my equipment to it limits; and can generally be found at a beach a couple of hours drive from home, shooting from sunset to sunrise - a time when most people would be sleeping. I also love night cityscape photography, and never say no to an opportunity to capture the golden hour between Melbourne's stunning architecture then some night photos. There is something about beautiful buildings and light trails that grabs my imagination.
I am a firm believer that communities help build positive attitudes and build friendships; and I am part of some great photography related communities that are all about getting people out exploring, talking, and taking photos. I am proud to be supported by MeFOTO Tripods Australia, Samyang Optics Australia and Tenba Bags Australia.
