Peter was the photographer at our wedding at the Burning Man festival in America.
He did an outstanding job both pre, during and post and we absolutely LOVE the photos.
He was an absolute pleasure to deal with and a fantastic photographer and I would not hesitate to recommend Peter.

The Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) is a police aligned charitable committee that supports the Special Olympics Movement for those people living with an intellectual disability.
The Torch Run seeks to support Special Olympics (SO) in providing opportunities for social inclusion, development and wellbeing for those in our community living with intellectual disability. Around the world, the LETR are guardians of the Olympic flame, The Flame of Hope and we are the largest grass roots fundraiser for SO.
Since 2014, Peter has volunteered his services to attend and photograph LETR and SO events and competitions across Victoria. In 2014 he accompanied police from five states on a series of torch runs across South Australia and Victoria to deliver the Flame of Hope to the National Games being held in Melbourne. Peter then spent three days photographing athletes competing in various sporting disciplines across the games. He has since photographed State games and LETR events in 2015-16, all of which he has done in his own time and at his own expense.
Peter provides all his services and photographs to the LETR and Special Olympics free of charge and without encumbrance. Largely through his work, the LETR has been able to establish an on-line gallery open to all Special Olympians and their families from which they can download images of their participation in torch runs and SO events.
Peter displays boundless energy and passion in ensuring he captures the endeavours of the participating athletes, yet he maintains sensitivity to the needs of both the special athletes and their families. His images are testament to his unique skills and his ability to capture the quintessential essence of the Special Olympics and the spirit of the athletes. His images have been used by many disability support organisations and agencies around Australia in publications and newsletters to promote the achievements of the disabled.
Peters work has bought opportunity and joy to the athletes and has been instrumental in helping drive both the LETR and SO in Victoria for which we are extremely grateful and highly recommend Peter's work.
