I’m a Fine Art photographer, based in Sydney, Australia. I studied at both Canterbury College of Art and the School of Communication Arts in the UK, and also Sydney College Of Art in Australia. I've also had a career in advertising, winning many international accolades including a coveted Grand Prix at Cannes.
I am primarily interested in documenting the everyday world around me, with a particular interest in landscapes featuring human interventions that visually activate their surroundings in strangely compelling ways. I am drawn to spaces that convey surreal or fictitious narratives, fortuitously photogenic environments that I try to carefully document rather than photographically exaggerate. Some of my work also explores the notion of place in the context of my dual citizenship of Australia and the UK. Often my Australian landscapes are shot under the soft light of overcast days, conditions more in keeping with my younger days in England - the muted tones portray an evenly balanced sense of place: an Australian scene with an ‘English’ sky. Occasionally I will throw all of the above out of the window and experiment with something new.
My work has been awarded both locally and internationally highlights include: Shortlisted at the World Photo Awards; Finalists at the HeadOn Landscape prize; winner Best Architectural Image, Kodak Salon, CCP Melbourne; selected Josephine Ulrick & Win Schubert Prize; finalists & winner Regional Landscape Prize Perth CLIP award; Honourable Mention, Exposure 2015.
