I always wanted to be an architect, but instead did several art degrees, taught in schools and universities around the world and retired a few years ago from the University of Melbourne where I was Head of Photography. My photographs are of things that interest me. My real love was medium format, black and white photography, but I have come to love my digital camera and the power of colour.

    It sure is Maggie

  • LOL. We drove through the rapids below in a motor boat with a crazy Brazilian who did his best to scare us! It was great to get back onto dry land to take photos!
