Every day I get up and do something I love which is pretty amazing.
I first caught the photography bug traveling and as my passion grew I would photograph a lot of my friends who are musicians and needed press shots. This was a great creative collaboration.
Creating interesting portraits, stories or capturing lifestyles/cultures and life’s fleeting moments are what I’m constantly striving for.
I have spent the first 4 years of my working life in the Marketing industry after graduating with an Honours degree having completed a thesis looking at branding and authenticity within the music industry and the concept of 'Selling Out'.
Spending 4 years learning and developing my craft at Photography Studies College (PSC) in Southbank enabled me to say ‘see ya later’ to full time corporate work in marketing and I began working for myself as a photographer. It’s been hectic, hard work but easily the most rewarding thing I‘ve done, and I’m loving every dam minute of it!
Professionally, I have a strong interest in portraiture and commercial work. With a strong marketing background I have a good understanding of brands and how to communicate a message through an image while maintaining true to the brand.
If you have any questions for me please get in contact.
