About Photographer

The deep passion I have for the Australian bush has been my inspiration for my landscape photography. I felt the need to document some of those exquisite and unique moments that you come across whilst wandering around rocky shores or through rugged bush landscapes. I have settled in the southern part of New South Wales and have been taking photographs for around three years. I have come to photography late in life but I feel I have a depth of experience in understanding the light and shape of the Australian landscape. It is a challenging place to take photos as the light can be harsh however the geographical scope is enormous. I have been been awarded a few bronze and a silver in international competitions (2011) as well as making it as a finalist int he Veolia Environment Photographer of the Year (2010) so I am keen to explore new territories in landscape photography.
