I started photography at the age of 17 when I started using my father's old folding camera. Shortly afterward I was able to buy a Russian Zenit copy of the famous German Exacta 35mm camera, and taught myself how to develop and print in the darkroom. Many years later I was able to buy a Mamiya c330 professional outfit and shoot a few weddings. Around the same time, working as a teacher, I set up a photography course in my school, building a darkroom in the back of one of the (very large) classrooms.
I love sporting shoots because you never know what you are going to get, with the possibility of something spectacular happening in your lens' view. On the other hand I like shooting in the studio, where everything is controlled so you do know what you are going to get.
Adelaide has some of the best beaches in the country, always good to shoot at ( except on those rare occasions when the sand is covered with seaweed), and some amazing parks. The Adelaide Hills are full of great locations for shooting at any time of day, but particularly in the evenings.See Portfolio & Book
I have always loved photography but the real magic started when I bought my first DSLR 8 years ago, it opened a whole new world for me. Being able to play with lenses, lights and setting to capture that special moment made me realise that I wanted to make photography my career.
I think each shot has its own charm, there is nothing more rewarding than being able to interact with someone to get the right pose and expression and finally get a good shot. The same thing happens with products, play with lights and camera setting and move things around until you get that shot that makes the product stand out.
Definitely the beach is one of my favourite places to take photos and here in Adelaide we are surrounded by it; early in the morning or during the golden hour it is magical.See Portfolio & Book
