With over twenty years of technical experience, my ability to capture moments is evident throughout my body of work. Whether it is a promotional advert or a snapshot for an article detailing the arrival of an expectant Princess Mary in Tasmania, my photographs represent the poignancy and significance of any given situation. My natural curiosity to recognise moments in time, irrespective of the subject or the environment is what motivates and inspires me to execute the perfect shot within the blink of an eye.
I possess sound knowledge in shooting promotional campaigns for the corporate industry. My images for companies such as QANTAS, Emirates Airlines, Exxon Mobile, TAB, Channel Ten and Seven Melbourne have been published and commissioned for promotional events. My photos were selected for a series of Australian Post 2012 stamps, promoting Australian Lawn Bowls. I am a permanent fixture at the Moonee Valley Racing Club and my pictures are routinely used for their internal and external publications. I have had the honour of shooting pictures for the CPEC (Cerebral Palsy Education Centre) and shooting the Price Waterhouse Marathon.
My photos have also featured in the The Age and the Herald Sun and have been used to document major events such as The Mardi Gras in Sydney and advertising campaigns for the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games. Over the years I have been privileged to have worked with prominent people including Jon Bon Jovi, Mick Jagger, Nikki Whellen and Bob Hawke.
I am able to tailor my skills and offer my services to a broad range of projects, events and exceptional moments. Corporate promotional events to the more intimate life occasions such as weddings and family portraits are not beyond my scope and expertise. I invite you to browse through my portfolio to gain a sense of how I can bring your vision to life.
