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.

I am an Accredited Professional Photographer with the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP), a member of Many Australian Photographers Group (MAPgroup) and Photographers Without Borders and I am the former Editor of Image - the official magazine of the Australian Photographic Society (APS).
