As a child I was given a Box Brownie camera that I wore out then later bought a Polaroid Land camera. During the 80's my photographs were born directly from my pride and joy - a Nikon F2AS or through experiments in a dark room where I learned to develop black and white, colour negatives and prints. I am interested in photographing architecture, portraiture and am particularly interested in social documentary/photojournalism. I still love to shoot with film but also in digital.
I am an award winning freelance photographer specialising in social documentaries such as the multi-award winning My Life in 2 Minutes and the ABC series Deadly Business. I have also won awards for multimedia training resources incorporating video. My work has been exhibited and published worldwide.
My recent work has been in developing countries such as rural Uganda, India and Nepal.
I am a Accredited Professional Photographer with the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) and a member of Many Australian Photographers Group (MAPgroup).
