I moved to Adelaide, Australia in 1978 from Auckland, New Zealand, as a child. Raised in Townsville, North Queensland, I left home to work in Central Australia where I first became interested in photography as a field geologist. From there I took a role in Johannesburg, South Africa, returned to Australia to marry, moved to Santiago, spent five years there in the capital of Chile and since have moved back to Brisbane, Australia where I am now based. I live with my wife of eight years and our three year old son. I have spent the past 10 years travelling all over the world and as part of my travel I have had the privilege of seeing and progressively becoming a more dedicated photographer, trying to represent the world as I see it. My passion in photography is diverse, but the area I enjoy most is the wonder of what is revealed within macro photographs. I enjoy abstract and realistic portrayals of natural subjects and ordinary things. Bright contrasting colours, dense texture, rhythmic and seemingly random patterns at all scales captivate me. The detail revealed through high resolution photographs demonstrates to me how much we miss while “living” life and suggests that any amount of time spent observing will never be too much. I particularly enjoy being stirred by a photograph which displays the awe delivered by a landscape, a raw/seized/held/bound/ captured emotion, rich morning light or a captured sense of movement. I am inspired by viewing photographs from the greats through to amateurs. They challenge me to continue to learn how to see.
