I’ve always loved photography, but my passion/obsession moved up a gear when I started working at the world’s largest photo agency Getty Images. I was fortunate to be surrounded by some of the very best editorial photographers in the world and whilst working there as a Senior Picture Desk Editor I edited literally thousands of their images every week. Natural curiosity really took over, how was that image created?
After spending seven years at Getty Images, where in between work hours as an Editor I would photograph live music gigs, red carpets and fashion shows for the company, I had built my knowledge and confidence in photography to a level where I was ready to leave the editing desk behind and pick up a camera full time. Having found a career I was passionate about and having had so much exposure to such world class photography it was a clear progression to become a full time Professional Photographer.
As a Freelance Photographer I am commissioned by a number of clients in Australia and abroad including photo agencies Getty Images and WireImage, with currently over twenty five thousand images on their editorial archives.
In late 2011 I took up the position as Chief Photographer at Time Out Melbourne.
If you have a look through this website you’ll see the range of work I carry out, from major events, editorial and commercial assignments through to food & drink and portraiture. I’m available for freelance work so please don’t hesitate to contact me, I’d love to hear from you.
