    Photography and design are true passions of mine. I make postcards, books, canvases, albums and cards through different types of photography. My favourite type would have to be landscape especially with my local city Perth as backdrop, but I also love natural portraits and sports.

    For me photography is something that helps me to relax, it can be an escape from the world. I perceive the world as moving so fast, the ever-changing technology, cars, people and it is all so overwhelming that I forget what I am taking in is 'real'. A photograph to me is different, it is still, it is peaceful and it can mean many things to many people.

    I enjoy documenting 'place' because they can represent something unique to numerous people. For example, if you ask most Australian people one place they love is the beach. It is a place of relaxation, sport, surf life saving, romance and much more. We all take a meaning from a 'place' and that's why I find it so interesting listening to other people's perceptions of my photographs; if it means something to them, what it means and why it means that.

    I find it so strange the way an old photograph (perhaps 'bad quality' in some people's eyes) can mean the world to someone. I look back at old photographs as myself as a child, with my friends, family and they are special to me. To others perhaps they mean nothing.

    A photograph can speak a million words and it can be interpreted in a million ways. I believe an image (or a set of images) can explain a place better than written language. Or if you place an image alongside words it brings the words to life and together it makes a great deal of sense.

    Photography can be boring for some, it can be important to others. I don't see myself as a paparazzo, chasing superstars with my camera although I hold nothing against their profession. I think I would find it hard to capture 'natural' images and that's what I love the most about my photos.

    My past has captured many meaningful moments and feelings that I often try to recreate through photographs as a statement or as something I think is beautiful.
    As an example the photo of young boy Kade (confused look on his face) I think of myself at that age and how I never understood why school was so challenging for me.
    The photos of the couple I see as real love and the mothers love of Riley is so special and gorgeous that I couldnt let them go without getting a photo.
    The boy climbing on the play ground, Addy is my cousin. He loves the outdoors and adventures . He is a risk taker and extremely kind, he also reminds me of myself compassionate, adventurous, impulsive and willing to give anything a go.


    I am drawn to water, the beach, the river, lakes and estuary's which is reflected in my many water themed shots. I have grown up by these places and have found a sense of calmness and peace when I am by water.

    Photography is an adventure for me, and I want to be able to share my adventures with the world on this website I have created. I hope you all love these photos as much as I do. View More...
