Being based in Perth, Western Australia, I have had a life of the beach, bush and outback.
Even from a very early age, traveling to remote locations, climbing mountains or visiting area’s that appear to have never been seen by another person provided me with the most enjoyment – and I was always eager for the next adventure.
Due to this, I’m a passionate bush walker who enjoys exploring Australia’s natural beauty. Specialising in Landscape, Seascape and Nature photography, I then find immense pleasure and enjoyment in presenting images from many beautiful locations.

As I got older, and with the freedom of being able to drive myself, this took off to another level. With modern tools such as Google Maps I’d plan where to go, and then would set off with my car, tent and provisions, often not seeing another soul along the way. Just me and mother nature.

Photography then went hand in hand with this, as I wanted to share my travels with my family, and from there another beast was born. Photography provided my escape from the busy modern world, brought me back down to Earth and kept me grounded.
You are constantly reminded how very insignificant we are, when perched on a mountain top at sunrise, or at a beach watching the surf pounding in. The amazing rock formations caused by thousands of millions of years of wind, rain, rivers or waves.
At the same time we see first hand how destructive we can be as humans.
Again photography for me provides a means to first of all admire, showcase and embrace this beauty, as well as preserve it and advertise it’s importance.

I’ve always been a very simple photographer, never with the latest camera or lenses. In fact have always had old model camera’s and the basic lenses as that enabled me to be able to head away on more trips.
I have always been more about the “being there” anyway, and if it takes me 100 trips back to a location to get that one shot I have dreamed of – I’d much rather do that and let mother nature do the work.
My aim is to capture a scene, not create one

Thank you for taking your time to join me on my photography journey, I hope you enjoy.
