I’m a fairly regular guy I think, I’ve always had a passion for arts and design and used to do a lot of painting and airbrushing. I studied photography back in high school, during the dark room era ;) But I’m mostly self taught, I’m a firm believer in the best way to learn is to go out and do. I enjoy having a beer, love music, especially live music. I believe in living each day to it’s fullest and packing as much into life as possible. We only live once and you never know what’s around the corner so I try to make the most of every opportunity.
Friends and family are very important to me, I wouldn’t be where I am today without the support and guidance of the amazing people in my life. I’m very social, love meeting new people and discussing all things sport, love, travel, music etc. I know what it’s like to lose someone very close to you and I think that’s where my drive for life and photography really comes from. Photography is a release for me, in both a way for me to express thoughts and feelings but also disconnect from the world we live in sometimes and just take in little things that pass us by everyday.
I started shooting landscapes, mainly long exposure images and then ventured into wedding photography as I love capturing emotion. I’ve recently started shooting more portrait type work really focusing on moody emotive images, contrasting textures and female form. My wife and I have 2 kids, our boy Fletcher who has just turned two and our little girl Eva is only 2 weeks old. Having kids has really made me appreciate the simple things in life, we get so caught up in stuff these days that really doesn’t have a huge affect on our lives.
