About me

I'm a Londoner that has been transposed to Brisbane for the last 4 years and has stayed here on and off for the last 20.  I have always been passionate about Art & Photography 

and followed this with a degree in Art & Design at Suffolk University, where I graduated in 1998.

I was fortunate to follow this with an exciting career in the film industry, working in special effects doing interesting things like atmospheric effects, pyrotechnics, animatronics, sculptures, and prosthetics for major British and Hollywood movies. 

A lot of the time I would have to document, with video and photography, mine and my teams special effects to show directors and producers what they might expect to see when we come to shoot on film.

I had to up my game very quickly if I was to present these photographs to some of the most respected creators in the movie industry. 

Some of these photographs would have the feeling of a documentary style and

I would soon become obsessed with this style of photography and carried it through to other fields of photography such as family life and street photography.


Always having a passion for photography, this documentary-style soon became an obsession and taking photos of everyday people all around me became a fascination.

Having a family of my own,  I was like any other parent and was continually capturing memories of my own family.  I wanted to take photographs of my children, my family, and friends on a daily basis to ensure these memories are freeze-framed so they could be kept and remembered forever.

Children change so quickly, many moments are missed and can be easily forgotten. So I feel that it is important to capture these moments not only for the parents but for the children to remember their joys of childhood. 

Family photojournalism is something I have done naturally over the years without thinking, however, realising I can share these precious moments with others was something that felt amazing!  Naturally, I wanted to make a career out of something I love doing.


Having these photographs presented in a book or on a wall collage, rather stuck on a camera is such a wonderful way to share and visualise these precious moments that you can look at, think back and smile.


The Photography book will become a very special keepsake to pass down. This is why my  "Family Photojournalism package"  "Day in the life" needs to be accompanied by a beautiful photography book, This for me is a must. 

See examples of these photos in the "A Day in the Life"  and the slide show in videos


Another huge passion of mine is creating fine art photography for your walls. Documenting images of your special moments and places. These Images are presented and printed on high-quality paper, mounted and ready to be framed making your personal photographs perfect for you to fill your walls.
