No better way to start the day than a swim in the ocean.

G'Day mate......

Yes thats right, I'm Australian and I reside on the East Coast of Australia, right near the border of Queensland and New South Wales.

This is the part where I go on about how I live and breath photography, and continue to tell you how much it means to me etc etc.... And the honest truth is what I just told you is true, it means a whole lot to me. I love creating images, and over the years (9 years in fact) my style has changed. I've bounced from one genre to another, and I now feel like I'm getting closer to settling down and finding my "niche"..... well at least I'm finding the photography that brings me the most joy. In saying that I'm still a sucker and I'll most likely always have my finger in a few photographic pies, as I said I love photography.

These days I mostly shoot Surf, Landscapes and Astro Photography. Though if you can't find me behind the camera, I'll either be selling someone their first camera or teaching them how to use it. I currently work full-time at Bentley's Camera House and I also tutor/mentor customers how to shoot in manual so they can get themselves out of the AUTO setting.
