I never intended to become a photographer. I was born in Alice Springs in January of 1971. At the age of twenty-three I picked up the family camera and made my first concerted effort at taking something other than a snapshot.
The initial results were far from spectacular, nevertheless I was hooked. This marked the beginning of a love affair with the photographic medium. The Western Australian landscape provided a constant source of inspiration, as well as a multitude of unique photographic opportunities.
I began making regular field trips to areas that held my interest. The frequency and duration of these trips increased over time, allowing me to relax and really immerse myself in my environment. I learnt to slow down, look closer and wait until all the elements in a scene came together to produce something special. Importantly, all the photographs I made were for me.
Today, not much has changed. Photography has become my life. I have seen a great deal of our country, yet often feel as if I have only scratched the surface. I feel compelled to explore further, dig deeper. Of course I still have to remind myself to slow down, look closer, wait longer. To be still and quiet. To allow things to unfold around me, leaving myself open to all possibilities. When this state of mind is achieved, great images are not forced or laboured over, they happen almost subconsciously.
In today’s loud and chaotic world, the natural landscape has become more important than ever. It provides solitude and sanctuary when we need it. It inspires and defines us, offering the soul serenity, beauty and diversity. What better reasons to immerse ourselves in it as often as possible.

OPEN EDITION PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINTS
All photographic prints are printed with pigment inks on Photorag Fineart paper. Photorag is produced by Hahnemuhle, who have been manufacturing paper since 1584. Photorag is an acid-free paper, making it highly resistant to ageing. It is also lignin-free, which prevents the paper from yellowing over time. As a result, your photograph will last a lifetime under normal lighting conditions. The materials used in matted photographs are also acid-free and lignin-free.
LIMITED EDITION CANVAS PRINTS
All canvas prints are printed with pigment inks on archival canvas. This canvas exhibits the same qualities as the photographic paper described above. All canvas prints are sprayed with a protective coating, adding to their durability and allowing gentle cleaning. They are printed on an individual basis, and signed and numbered accordingly.
