17/5/19 - Welcome to My New Website
Sheez what a long time coming…. Ill be honest the last few years have been extremely productive and I have a great new collection of images to share! The challenge has been finding the inspiration to refresh my brand and display my work in a way that I am happy with. It has been a good year or two in the making but it sure is something I am proud of. A few new features include the option to purchase images with the click of a button on this site and also a more aesthetically pleasing layout and design to make my images pop. I hope you enjoy and please feel free to provide any feedback, I am certain their will be a few teething issues!

After Workshops are available within Adelaide and surrounds and also make a great gift idea.

11/10/14 - 2nd Place in Ningaloo Coast Photography Competition
I was recently fortunate enough to spend 3 nights in Coral Bay in Western Australia's Exmouth Region, know worldwide for the stunning Ningaloo Reef.
An annual photography competition is run in this part of the world by the Exmouth Visitor Centre and my image Backlit Blue was awarded seconded place from over 3000 images submitted.
My timing was very fortunate as I was lucky enough to time my visit with a big swell and get some unique shots of the area in my signature style from the waves.
1/8/14 - EPSON International Panoramic Awards Top 50
My image taken at Tacking Point Lighthouse has received a Silver award and placed in the Top 50 in the Epson International Panoramic Awards. This competition is open internationally and is a highly valued photographic competition. To place so high is a great personal achievement and what makes it even better is the fact that it was shot using a panoramic camera and film, not digital equipment like a vaast majority of entrants!

2/4/2014 - Australian Geographic ANZANG Nature Photographer of the Year 2014 Finalist
Earlier this year I looked into how I could get images published in Australian Geographic Magazine and after a brief search I discovered a prestigious annual competition ran by Australian Geographic and the South Australian Museum.
I decided to enter the competition and have been fortunate enough to be selected as one of nine shortlisted finalists which is a huge personal achievement.
I will announce the selected image shortly.
As part of the process I will have my selected image published in their full colour book and exhibited in the ANZANG Nature Photographer of the Year 2014 exhibition, which this year will be held locally at the South Australian Museum in October. Prize winners will be announced at the exhibition launch on Thursday 9th October 2014 at the South Australian Museum which will be an exciting time.
I will be sure to keep you posted on the events associated with the competition and it would be worth having a look at the exhibition later this year.
