I’ve been fascinated with the lens for as long as I can remember. As a child, I used to get inventive with the instant camera, taking photos of my toy dinosaurs from different angles to make them look larger and more fascinating than they really had been. As an adult I strayed away from stills pictures and took up filmmaking as a profession. Firstly as a cinematographer, then moving in to editing and visible effects.

It was my work within the visual effects area that launched me to Photoshop way before there was a ‘CS’ anything. The tons of hours I spent using Photoshop, opened my thoughts to so many possibilities beyond movie and video graphics and effects. With this, my passion for creating digital art was ignited.

The one facet of photography that I found disappointing was the reality of it. When seeing one thing with our eyes, it’s filtered by a lifetime of memories and feelings. For this reason everybody sees things differently and in their own way. When taking a photograph, particularly with a raw digital camera, there is only the reality, void of emotion. Through the use of photoshop, I’m able to reintroduce the filter of my feelings and experiences to seize what I was feeling in regards to the image at the time I took it. It could only be the tweaking of the colors or an entire overhaul of the picture. My aim is to visually create emotion. I want individuals to really feel something after they have a looked at my artwork.

But it’s still bigger than the nine thousand nine hundred and ninety nine numbers that came before it. / I could spend time making up a lo…

I've been slack...

Well, not really. Actually I’ve been very busy. It’s just that I’ve been slack around these parts. / But I’m going to make a come back! / I hear the loud roar of a one armed man clapping in the back row. / But seriously… Some of you already know that last year I went on a Photographic exploration of Australia. I didn’t quite make it all the way around but did g…
