and I’m an Accredited Professional Photographer (APP) with the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) in Canberra Australia

In 2018 I was a finalist AIPP Australian Emerging Photographer of the Year in the Australian Professional Photography Awards (APPAs) and in 2019 I was a Top 10 finalist in the Capture Magazine Emerging Landscape Photographer of the Year Awards

I have always enjoyed taking photos but really got into photography seriously in 2014 and deep dived into all the creativeness and technicality that comes with good photography. You’ll often find my photographs in social media and in the news featuring iconic Canberra landscapes and locations

Photography experience

As well as being an experienced photography workshop facilitator, I’m also well versed across a number of genres:

  • Landscape
  • Astro and low light
  • Weddings
  • Portraiture
  • Commercial
  • Events

My clients have included government departments, private business and individuals

I’ve also done a number of media interviews on radio and the news about the different types of photography I do because I just love to share information and get people excited about photography. Check out the following link to see where I’ve been featured in the media

What inspires me in photography

The thing I love the most about photography is the feeling I get when I know I have captured “that moment”. Such as the feeling of excitement I get when I capture an amazing lightning strike, the feeling of serenity from a beautiful sunset, and the feeling of connection through a great portrait.

I’m often inspired by the feedback people give me about my photography; it encourages me and pushes me to keep on taking photos that people love. I take a lot of photos of Canberra and have regularly received comments that my photos show people a side of their city they haven’t seen before and that it makes them want to explore it. Comments like that are also the things that push me to keep on taking great photos and continue working on my craft.

Photography for me is both a creative outlet and an opportunity to explore techniques – both in camera and in post processing – that can lift a photo to really capture what my eye saw.
