My journey began as a hobby when traveling across the globe from Australasia to South America. I was fascinated with taking photographs of wildlife and street cultures. Showing emotion through the lens of the camera lit a fire in me. Although I’m a trained clinical and research optometrist (practising since 2005), my interest in optics and light has made photography my main profession. I’m currently part of an incredible team at Super Being Labs, where I produce projects and capture imagery that helps communicate and create social impact. I’m currently heavily focused on a project that is close to my heart, Being ManKind.
Thank you for taking the time to view my work, and do get in touch. I would love to hear from you.
Where I started
I started practising photography using an entry-level Olympus camera and two standard lenses, which served me well for a number of years. Last year I upgraded to the Canon Mark 5D Mark III and once I got used to the extra weight and body size, I have never looked back! In combination with the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens, it provides the perfect pairing for portraiture and rapid wildlife capture. Never one to travel light, my backpack is usually packed to the brim with additional lenses (Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM, Sigma 150mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM APO Macro), a Canon Speedlite 600EX II-RT, a portable multi-collapsible reflector and heap of creativity!
