After picking up a Kodak brownie camera at the age of seven there was no going back. A subscription to National Geographic not long after sealed my fate. My mother has a lot to answer for – I may have ended up with a real job. Art college and stints on some of Australia’s finest newspapers were just about the best apprenticeship you could have. Trips to some crazy parts of the world including Afghanistan, Laos and Burma – before they became fashionable – and the odd celebrity portrait along the way pretty much shaped my photographic career. Many enjoyable hours in the darkroom seem like a century ago but I’m glad I experienced those distant black & white silver gelatin days. Documentary and travel photography have also been an enduring love which may explain how I was voted Captured magazines’ Australian Travel Photographer of the year – twice.
