'Beauty can be seen in all things, seeing and composing the beauty is what separates the snapshot from the photograph'
I first came across documentary photography on a visit to London when I stumbled across an exhibition by the now legendary photojournalist Don McCullin. It was like peeling back the curtains to reveal a whole new way of seeing the world. Beauty and tragedy all in one, it was like classic opera.
I look for authenticity and honesty in my work, classic in nature, devoid of time. I am drawn to natural organic stories. There is beauty in everything, even the seemingly very ordinary.
On a wedding day I am looking for those fleeting moments, time capsules of love and emotion. Observing as the sparkle of magic ignites and your long journey together begins.
Some other interesting things about our family:
I love the colour blue.
We have a greyhound called Jo Jo but our cats still rule the house.
We have two beautiful little girls.
We live on a farm.
Narell and I are also foster carers and we welcome children into our home who need love and care.
My work has been shown in galleries across Australia.
I am an award winning digital printmaker.
My personal landscape work is held in private collections worldwide.
In 2013 I am planning world domination.
Thanks for taking the time to look at my work. I look forward to hearing from you.
