I do not support PINTEREST and do not want my images “pinned”. I do NOT grant permission to do so. Thank you for respecting my wishes on this point.

Peter lives in Melbourne and has been involved with photography virtually all his life. Inspired by his mother who was an industrial chemist and amateur photographer, Peter started out in his pre-teens with 35mm monochrome. He did all his own processing and darkroom work and then progressed to working with Agfa colour slide film. He switched to digital in 2005 and then joined a camera club and has since been actively involved in both national and international competitions where he has had hundreds of international acceptances and a number of awards. He tends to enter mainly international competitions these days.

Peter is a keen traveller, especially to places a bit off the beaten track, and a lot of his images involve travel photography, usually associated with landscapes, nature and people. Not content with that Peter also does a lot of creative work on images and about 30% of his international awards come from creative and experimental images.
