I will photograph any event you are holding. I will shoot your portrait or create a model portfolio for you. I am available to provide private photography tuition. I will even make artworks and montages constructed from your own images. Why choose me? Well, read about my extensive experience and decide for yourself.

I have been a member of photography clubs since 1971 and was President of the Canberra Photographic Society for eight consecutive years in the 1990s. I joined the Australian Photographic Society (APS) in 1976 and have been actively involved with it ever since. I have served two terms as APS President, and currently chair its Contemporary photography group. Since 2013 I have been a member of the Board of Directors of Photo Access (, and currently am its Deputy Chair.

In 1987, I organised the national collection of amateurs' photographs for use in the Personal Views element of the 1988 Australian Bicentennial Exhibition. In 1988, I co-ordinated a project to photographically document how Canberrans celebrated the Bicentennial year.

I have had illustrated articles and portfolios published in various books, magazines and newspapers, have lectured on photography to community and photographic groups and have participated in numerous public group exhibitions.

One of my digital images was selected as a finalist from 14,000 entries in the 2010 Art of Photography Show in San Diego, USA. In 2013 I was selected as one of 100 people each exhibiting one photograph in a Centenary of Canberra exhibition and published photo book.
