I’ve been on redbubble for 7 years, and it’s been amazing! I’ve learned so much and have made some awesome friends and talented artists! Here’s a bit about me:

I’m an American photographer, and have been living in Sydney, Australia for 8 years now.

I shot with a Minolta X-370 and X-700 for about 12 years, and was published a couple of times during that camera era. I’m a purist and an old-schooler, and developed and printed most of my own images as well. I now shoot with a Nikon D90, and I love the ease of digital.

I believe that to be a photographer at the most basic level, you must “have an eye” for it. You must be able to visualize an object, scene or idea, and then try to squeeze that image into that little box called a “camera.”

I tend to gravitate towards eclectic objects and scenes, and so I find myself shooting mostly abstracts and close-ups. That’s not to say that I’ll run away from an amazing sunset or balk at a beautiful mountain scene – they’re just more the exception than the rule in my portfolio. I also find people – especially the older generation – very interesting. However, I’ve not taken many portraits. I’m eager to dedicate more time attempting to capture the character and essence of people – who they are, and where they’ve been.

Photography to me isn’t just about capturing beauty or magic. It’s about capturing life as it is. Whether that’s dirty, beautiful, complicated, simple or slightly altered – it’s the perception of the person behind the camera. That’s what makes the art of photography so real and unique, and that’s why it’s a passion that drives me and leaves me wanting more.

Here I hope to express my creative soul, learn from some of the masters, and possibly have my work end up on the walls of some like-minded artists.

Disappointed

After being unsuccessful trying to drag new images from my library into folder galleries on my Bubblesite, and then being told by “Support” that Bubblesites weren’t being maintained or updated, I was left feeling unloved and unsupported. / The lovely “Tammara” told me that lots of “exciting changes” were happening to the main redbubble site, but that none…

Introducing Duncan - The "Market Man"

3 years ago, I captured an image of a very stoic-looking gentleman at the Flemington Markets in Sydney. Little did I know how much he would resonate with people and how well-received his image would become. I’ve been wanting to show-off this unique man for years now, on a higher level, but have been unable to because I lacked his permission. / However, today I took a chance and headed to …

A short break from Japan

I visited Japan in October 2010, and am STILL working on pics from that trip. Work and just life in general seem to sometimes get in the way of me working on my craft. It’s not a bad thing, but when I was trolling through my albums the other day, I realized that I’ve taken at least another 1,000 shots since my trip to Japan, and haven’t done a thing with them. / So, it’s…

Add On Photography Exhibition

Hi Everyone. I’m going to be part of the Add On Photography Exhibition again this year, which is part of Head On, the biggest annual photography exhibition in Australia. I’ve got 1 image in the show, and when you read the flyer, you’ll notice there are lots of other bubblers in the show as well. If you’re in Sydney, I hope to see you there!
