Born in the UK, I emigrated to Australia with family at the age of '12', it was not long after I soon discovered a love for taking photo's, spending much of my spare time experimenting on family and friends! along with many hours spent inside the school darkroom.
My chosen career path lead me straight into professional work after high school where it soon became clear this was definitely the future for me!
My love for photography has got me to where I am today, now in the professional industry for 15 years, with extensive experience in many different areas of photography, Even with photography as a hobby! photographing our beautiful landscapes, including an exciting 12 months in Europe chasing the perfect image.
Photography for me is not a 9-5 job, it is something you live and breathe and you see the world in a different way.
People always say 'Never work with children & Animals!' ..well I do both in my career and I wouldn't change a thing! they are probably my most loved subjects, 'The open heart and mind of a child 'not yet spoilt' by the world I believe is the one of the most beautiful images in the world!' and the same goes for our beloved pets, even better a combination of both together, life doesn't get much better than that!
I believe photography is the best thing since 'Beans & Mash' ...imagine what the world would be like if we could not sit and smile over all those old photos, they are moments frozen forever and I believe a treasure to our lives. I am just glad my career can contribute to that!
'Oh' and some of you may be asking 'Why Beans and Mash'?....well my friend ,there is a an old story that I will be happy to tell you about if we should ever meet! ...But also I am sure it is a name that will stick in your mind!
