Born and raised in country South Australia, it seems I have always had an affinity for the great outdoors.
Maybe that explains a keen interest in land forms which lead to tertiary academic studies in geomorphology.
It may also explain my drive to hike and climb to remote locations carrying way to much camera gear!
A good friend introduced me to digital photography in 2002 which resulted in the purchase of a fixed focal length, 2 meg camera.
About 18 months and two cameras later, I bought my first dslr.
This digital photographic journey has brought some notable achievements.
These include the Rain & Horne and People's Choice awards at the 2006 Willunga Almond Blossom festival.
At the 2007 Royal Adelaide Show National Photographic Competition I was fortunate enough to placed 1st in Large Colour (any subject) section and received the Champions ribbon in Overall Best Large Colour Print in competition in the same year.
I have also held 4 exhibitions which have been both challenging and rewarding.
Work commitments means I do not have the time I'd like to give to my photography, however, I am thankful for the opportunities I do have to pursue this passion.
