I have been in love with the art of photography since I was given my first camera at the age of twelve. As a teenager I took photographs of anything and everything I could find and during my final years of high school I studied photography, fine art and graphic design.

After a ‘gap year’ spent traveling and photographing amazing landscapes and architecture in the Middle East I returned to Melbourne where I embarked on a three year, full time Diploma of Illustrative Photography. I gained my Diploma, with a Major in Photojournalism in 1993.

Whilst I am inspired to take photographs of anything and everything I have always had a passion for photographing people in their natural environments – the human face fascinates me. During the years I spent at home raising my two beautiful daughters I developed a genuine passion for photographing children.

Capturing children in their natural environment allows me to share with the viewer the inner spirit of the child. Every child has an amazing individual spirit. Introverts, extroverts, philosophers and jesters – I strive to capture every child’s spirit through a photojournalistic approach in my images.

Photography has allowed me to bring home what I have experienced on my adventures across the globe and provided me with memories of people and events in my life. It is now my desire to capture unique moments in other peoples lives and provide my clients with lasting memories.

My approach helps create an informal environment where my clients can relax, have fun and most importantly be themselves. I strive to capture emotions and personalities with beautiful, natural portraits that tell a story.

I have recently been highly commended at the NSW Plein Air Parliamentary Photo Prize and was the winner of a recent Photocontinental competition. My images have been highly commended in other competitions such as the Courier Mail and dpeveiew as well as being broadcast on The Weather Channel.

If you live in Brisbane and surrounds and are interested in having some photographs taken please take a look at my website www.pureportraiture.net
