About Me

I've been dabbling in photography since buying my first digital camera in 1998. These days it's become a pretty serious hobby. I'm an amateur who strives to produce professional-quality images.

I am an active member of the Melbourne Camera Club and was co-ordinator of their Portrait Group for 2005-2007. I teach some sessions of their "Introduction to Photography" course on "Light and Lighting" and "Digital Photography" and other occasional sessions on basic lighting principles and techniques.

My photos have been used on websites for the Rosstown Hotel, singer/songwriter Deborah Conway, 'blues' duo Matt Walker & Ashley Davies and in the artwork of albums by Stephen Cummings, The Dunaways and The Prozac Blues Band.

My primary interest is portrait photography. I enjoy the process of working with a 'model' to get an image that we both think is damn cool (what's the point otherwise?). I'm known for my love of playing with different lighting effects and tricks.

When working with models, I try to keep the shoot relaxed and fun and I'm usually paranoid about whether my model is comfortable. This is my hobby so I don't want either of us to be stressed about something as frivolous as taking some photos.

I also dabble in gig, event and children photography.

I'm always looking for willing models so if you would like to be shot by me (I'm in Melbourne, Australia), just send me an email. I can shoot on-location, in my fully equipped home studio or I also have occasional access to a larger studio space. My normal policy is to give models a DVDROM of all of their shots for their personal use.

I am often available at relatively short notice so if you have a sudden urge to do a shoot, feel free to get in touch.

See my website (listed above) for examples of my work.
