A little bit about me......

I’m a self-taught, Award winninq fine art/nature photographer living in 

beautiful Perth, Western Australia. My passion is to create stunning and

captivating images showcasing the extraordinary beauty Mother Nature

bestows for us, and I love pushing the boundaries of traditional landscape art, 

photography towards through use of movement, abstracts and minimalism.

I believe my artwonderfully illustrates that Mother Nature is the truly the

ultimate artist.

 

My first foray into photography was taking a Kodak Instamatic on a trip to

Africa when I was 11 and I was a bit hooked. But it took many more years to really apply my love for it – life just got in the way. It wasn’t until about 5 years ago, I decided to make the leap and put a big focus on advancing my love for photography and start my own business.

 

My photographic style began with a liking for wide expansive landscapes, and whilst I do still very much enjoy this spectrum of photography, my interest and motivation has moved to more intimacy in landscapes.  I now really love pushing the boundaries between photography and art, with a particular emphasis on movement in imagery and especially that of the ocean, of which we are so blessed in Australia.   I also love to focus on the tiny aspects of beauty in nature, even in the simple or seemingly mundane – it maybe a cliché, but my photographic journey really has opened my eyes more to all that Mother Nature offers.

 

And my other newfound love is aerial photography, either using a drone or occasionally hanging out the door of a small Cessna to capture more of nature’s magic. This aerial vantage point really reveals a whole new way of seeing and capturing the extraordinary beauty of our planet, often producing some incredible abstract imagery, which I also so love.

In my journey to enhance my photography, I have also now developed very proficient skills for post-processing, utilising software packages like Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.  As such, I'd very much like to offer my services to those who would like to have their photos given that "POP" factor.  Especially for your beloved travel photos, I believe you'll be amazed how a little "tweaking" can make your treasured holiday memories so much richer.

I really want my art to create an emotional response for the viewer, as well as help facilitate a closer connection to our natural world, and ultimately foster a true desire to help better care for our Planet and inspire people to make it a better place for generations to come. Mother Nature really does desperately need our help.

 

I’m always trying to do my little bit to help our amazing planet, so I’ve teamed up with OneTreePlanted and will donate 2% of my sales towards global reforestation.  So everytime you view a purchased piece of my artwork or use my merchandise you’ll know a tree is now growing to help our planet survive.  Please check out this amazing endeavour on www.onetreeplanted.org

                                

I’m also a very proud member of Nature First: The Alliance for Responsible Nature Photography and I’m dedicated to following the Nature First Principles:

  • Prioritize the well-being of nature over photography.

  • Educate yourself about the places you photograph.

  • Reflect on the possible impact of your actions.

  • Actively promote and educate others about these principles
