I grew up in Ballarat, playing Aussie rules football through muddy winters and cricket in blazing summers, before graduating as a food scientist and working in that industry for ten years while taking various part-time courses in photography and printing techniques. Finally chucking in the lab coat I traveled through Europe, cycled through France before living in Provence for a year, then Scotland, all the while capturing the surrounds.

Then to New Zealand for seven years, running a luxury Lodge in Russell, Bay of Islands while documenting life and culture of the small village before plunging into digital photography full-time and opening the Bay of Islands Image Gallery and exhibited in several group shows.

Returning to Ballarat in 2007 I continued my commercial work, including freelance photojournalism for The Ballarat Courier. Over the past few years I’ve been exploring the greater region for my Abandoned Places series. A former board member of the Ballarat International Foto Biennale i’ve exhibited in the 2009, 2011 and 2013 events, with my work featuring in the January issue of BETA – Developments in Photography"

A year long odyssey around the country in a caravan during 2015 & 2016 has resulted in a wealth of experiences and huge library of new images, for details of the trip and photos please visit my blog.

On the trip I became a contributor to an new all Australian stock photo library www.austockphoto.com.au
