"To show the world what is really there, not just what one thinks they see."
I believe photography is about portraying a scene in ways that people
recognise, but at the same time, have never witnessed before. Anyone
can take a photo of a scene, but I want to show the world what I can
create through my lens in ways that are unique and yet completely
relatable to other people who have witnessed the same scene.
Crafting most of my photographs require careful planning and
patience, which from a glance of the result can seem simple, however I
cannot control the weather, the light, and the majority of subjects I
take photos of are immovable. I carefully weigh all of these factors
into creating my art and the result are my numerous award-winning
I draw much of my inspiration from the indefatigable Adelaide-based landscape photographer, David Evans,
and as such I tend to use allot of long exposure techniques in my work,
most obvious with my astro and waterfall photographs. Long exposure
photography allows me to capture a series of events, or longer moments
in time that the human eye cannot otherwise capture in a scene, hence
helping me in my goal of showing the world what people recognise, but
still be unique about it.
Having lived in Japan for 2 years, much of my work portrays a
landscape of Japan not many people tend to associate with the country. I
enjoy showing people the vivid colours and rolling landscapes of the
countryside of Japan, along with traditional architecture and her

Other notable work focuses on the astounding landscapes around
Australia and the South Pacific ocean, where I have travelled
extensively other the last 5 years, solely for the sake of documenting
it’s scenery in my own style of photography.
I have completed a Degree in Multimedia at the University of
South Australia, a Certificate IV in Photo Imaging at TAFE SA and am
currently studying for a Masters in Teaching at Flinders University;
however I would very much like to pursue photography as my full-time
What the future holds for me is unsure, I am planning on holding
an exhibition for my work in the near future, and I would very much like
to travel to the north of Australia and perhaps up into south Asia to
create more stunning photography. In the meantime however I am very much
enjoying branching out into event photography, having covered a few
weddings in 2010 to great acclaim.
