I am a Brisbane-based photographer who luckily gets to spend my time taking pictures of the world around me through my candid portraits, news and event images. I have an intuitive approach to my work, always looking to draw out the best in people. Always excited by what I see with my camera; wanting to create those images that get the fine balance between a persons strength and vulnerability.
My images are carefully constructed giving a sense of time, place and personality. I have spent many years working to deadline, and delivering creative visual results. I have an innate understanding of media and editorial imagery and can drive a shoot in a fast and creative manner without forgetting the tone of the story. I have spent many years working in corporate communications where imagery and innovation go hand in hand.
Black and White images are a wonderful and timeless way to hold on to a memory as well as the perfect tool for an alternative creative approach. I use a Leica M Monochrom which gives a distinctly unique, fine art feel and I also shoot on film using a Medium Format.

I have an exhilarated feeling every time I think of what we acheived. Clare was also really touched by the imagery and space.
You have a way, a manner about you that brings out the very best in all.
Cant wait to do a new website. That is a feeling i am not familiar with...so thank you.

I do not like being photographed and I'm rarely happy with photos taken of me. However the photos that Erika took earlier this year are the first ones I can't find a single fault with, can look at without cringing and absolutely love. Erika takes flawless and amazing photographs.
