While it's not my day job, I have a passion for design and photography which keeps me inspired and driven to explore the places around me, wherever that may be.


Having grown up all over the place from the Snowy Mountains of NSW to Bandar Seri Begawan in Brunei, I am now living in South Australia with my wife and our 4 year old retrievador Yuki. Please have a look around to see what we've been up to.


Photography

I have been hooked on digital photography ever since my first Sony Cybershot. Upgrading to the Cybershot H5 allowed me to control aperture for the first time and I had an "ah ha" moment when the three variables of exposure suddenly made sense to me. Soon I was trying to exploit the camera and post processing to the fullest to more closely mach the experience of being there. Once the funds allowed I purchased my first dSLR, a Pentax K20D and my options exploded. Now I'm shooting with a Pentax K5 and still loving every shutter release.

My goal with my photography is to attempt to capture moments in my journey through life. This means an emphases on trying to recreate the colours and the atmosphere of the moment and a willingness to exploit all tools to do so.



Design


I have been using Photoshop extensively since version 4.0 and while I've no formal training, my primary clients have continuously pushed me to develop my skills and knowledge of the whole creative suite. I am currently sole artist for an ever expanding aviation product used by thousands of pilots and am responsible for their advertising campaign around the world.

The experience of being responsible for international ad campaigns has given me the confidence to tackle any challenge. However I'm ready and willing to help out with what ever design work you are after, big and small.
