I’ve happily photographed far and wide in a range of styles, but documentary style photography fascinates me most. I enjoy observing people and creating a sense of ease and mystery in front of the camera, watching and capturing moments unfold as humans interact in a relaxed, natural and sometimes humourous way. 

My portraiture has been included in the National Photographic Portrait Prize, Olive Cotton Portrait Prize, Josephine Ulrick and Win Schubert Photography Award, Moran Art Prize, Head On Portrait Prize and Black Swan Portrait Prize. My work is held in the permanent collections of the Gold Coast City Gallery and Murray Art Museum. 

I live in Melbourne with my wife, daughter and dog.
