Peter was a professional medievalist, freelance photographer, artist and sometime musicologist, philosopher, essayist, videographer, organisational dynamics consultant and policy adviser.
He began taking photographs for a quarter of a century. He had a Dip of Illustrative Photography (Fine Art), have had several exhibitions (including at Southbank, Roar2 and Linden Galleries in Melbourne) and worked as a freelance photographer for many publications including The Age, Basketball Australia, Climb, Rock, Rock and Ice, local newspapers, shot stock for Black Star and online agencies and done many commercial shoots.
His areas of interest, photographically speaking, where diverse. He enjoyed alternative processes (cyanoptype, polaroid dye transfer and salt prints) . His favourite subject matters included landscapes, portraiture (mostly environmental), conceptual, architectural, street/social comment, dance, fine art nudes and music.
Out from behind the lens he worked as a professional medievalist with two partners (and wonderful friends), do living history/experimental archaeology as a lifestyle more than a hobby and was an avid musicologist, writing reviews and listening to a wide range of musical genres (not hip-hop, rap, musicals, country & western or opera, though). His tastes run to progressive, neo-prog, prog-metal, electronica, post-rock, ambient and conceptual music. He was also an avid reader of science fiction, fantasy, philosophy, social psychology and futurology books.
