Sometimes things are best said with colour. As I travel the sites of the East Coast of Australia, I am working towards a generic feel for my image making in order to direct work towards gallery display but certain situations just don’t lend themselves to the darker more somber mood. My whole day has been spent staring at the perfect clouds as they travelled over the hills of NSW. I found myself constantly scanning the landscape for these rare opportunities where simplicity is married with fascinating line and colour.
Photographed with Nikon D700 and 150mm-500 Sigma F5.6 lense.

My interest in photography began back in high-school when I used my mother’s Olympus OM-1 to shoot sports events. I learnt to understand film, light meters and other technical issues. I bought my first SLR, a Nikon F70, when I finished uni and became more focussed on shooting portraiture, landscape and photojournalism. Since then I have not looked back opening my own business in 2009 specialising in portrait photography.
