Welcome to my world of photography.

 I first started taking pictures at the age of 16. Buying my first 35mm film camera at a pawn shop in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. This was one of our yearly migration spots for some spring and summer surf. I then began documenting our antics, the beach, the surf, our fun and life in general.

From the moment I pressed my first shutter, hearing that click, I was hooked. Looking through the viewfinder, blurring in and out of focus, was like seeing the world in a new way. I liked this new world I saw, so I never looked back, and have been creating photos ever since.

Photography has become the biggest passion in my life. I enjoy all aspects of photography and creating art. Capturing moments for others to own, share and be inspired by.

 I specialise in travel photography, portraits, commercial work and weddings.

Currently based in the Eastern suburbs of Sydney NSW, Australia. I am willing to travel.
