"I am passionate and wildly enthusiastic about landscape photography, having spent the last 20 years exploring all parts of Australia to photograph.
I first fell in love with photography at the age of 13. Following my love of ornithology, I photographed birds. Once leaving university, I pursued a career in sports photography where I covered over 300 events across Australia and the world, including the Sydney 2000 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
My passion has always been photographing the breathtaking Australian landscape. For the past 20 years, I have been priviledged to call the Australian wilderness my office. For me, there’s nothing more exhilerating than being surrounded by this serenity. Whether it be standing on top of a mountain, or wandering along a ancient dry creek bed, my heart and soul always feels at home amongst these landscapes.
My drive is to showcase the immense beauty and variety of Australia by bringing his art into every home and office. In doing so, I hope to highlight the importance of protecting what we are so lucky to call our home. And for my artwork to bring people together; to get them talking to one another, challenging their visual perceptions and levels of interpretation, on a deeper and more spiritual level."
