About Me

I’m just a tall guy from the small coastal town of Lennox Head who enjoys creating stuff. I’m always looking for a challenge and there’s little I love more than learning something new. The truth is, if it’s not a challenge then I’m probably not interested.

In the last few years I have developed a real passion for photography and for ocean photography in particular. It was an interest that started simply but grew quickly and I know it will be a lifelong pursuit.

I’m lucky enough to have had access to technology my entire life. As a kid, I was making websites, videos and computer games because I found the challenge fun. Since then I have developed skills across a wide range of digital areas including graphic design, video production, web & app development, 3D modelling & animation and user experience design.

I am well-versed in Adobe Creative Suite with skills in Photoshop, Illustrator, Lightroom, Premiere, After Effects and InDesign. I have experience with Swift, Objective-C, PHP, Javascript, HTML, CSS, Java, VBA and Python amongst others. If it exists in the digital space then I probably have some level of experience with it.

That being said, I don’t mind getting my hands dirty. I enjoy woodwork and have made a handful of acoustic guitars which I enjoy playing almost every day.

Photography

I enjoy all forms of photography. When I first started photography, I naturally gravitated towards landscapes and I love every aspect of landscape photography. That love of landscape photography transformed into my real passion. Ocean photography.

I grew up on the coast so most of my landscapes incorporated the ocean anyway. There's something about the ocean that naturally draws me in. I think it's because the ocean is always changing, mutating. Every day is different and every day presents new photographic challenges and opportunites. The challenge, that's why I love photography.

A few years ago I purchased an underwater housing for my camera. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. The opportunities it has opened up for me, both photographically and professionally, still astounds me. I've had various photos used by Canon Australia, Greenpeace, Tourism Australia and Destination NSW, among others.

Photography will be a life-long passion for me. I think it's important to continually push your own boundaries and photography is perfect for that. There's always going to be a better photograph out there and the only way to take it, is to be ready for it.
