I love photography. I live for it. I've never done much else. Earlier in my career I worked as a camera assistant, in press agencies, as photo research for The Australian magazine, on film productions as a focus puller and stills photographer. All the while I was shooting freelance in the background and studying.
When I finally narrowed my career down to purely being a photographer, I've had images published in magazines and newspapers all over the globe, from the Sydney Morning Herald to the Guardian. I was the official photographer for the Bondi View newspaper in its formative years. As a freelancer I'm interested in many things, happy to try new types of photography. I don't plan on ever retiring.
I need to hear your ideas so I can use that spark to create the fire. It's so easy to take photos. It's a challenge to be an artist.
