For over 10 years I have been passionately crafting images that convey a unique and emotive style and genre. With my varied interests that inspire my images, I love to get out and about and find moments in time to capture, from beautiful environments, stunning landscapes, exploration of our universe through to abstracts that capture a different view and story.


2020

2020 has been an interesting year for all as lockdowns due to the global pandemic continue into 2021.

Photographically, it has been a more subdued. One major trip in 2020 and just prior to full lockdowns coming into effect, was spending close to two weeks in South Australia travelling the Eyre Peninsula from Coffin Bay / Port Lincoln back to Adelaide. The trip provided some great photographic opportunies as well as getting back to the Finders Ranges and revisiting some of the unique spots.

I have been fortunate to have also been able to experience this trip with my partner, Linda Fury, whom is also a beautiful photographer in her own right and also president of the Kiama-Shellharbour Camera Club.

As part of my commitment in photography, I am also currently on the committee and member in the Kiama-Shellharbour Camera Club. The camera Club has also provided good experience with respect to awards, printing and assisting other members in the field of photography.


2019

Each year, on the 3rd full weekend in August, the International Lighthouse and Lightship weekend is held. Several historic lighthouses are illuminated across the weekend.

In Wollongong NSW, the historic breakwater lighthouse is lit as well as the Point Perpendicular lighthouse in Jervis Bay.

In 2019 I had the visited the lighthouse and was able to take some images at night.

During the same period, I was playing around with an imaging app that allows to "wrap" images into spheres. I had uses one of my lighthouse images and was able to come up with some interesting abstract images.

From these series of images, I had created a small story board, "Attack of the Lighthouse".

2019 also saw one of my later images, First Light receive a Silver Award in the Australian Professional Photography Awards.

The image was taken in the Hunter Valley in NSW and also was the weekend that Linda and I had spent with David Oliver, whom is one of my insirational photographers and mentors.

When Only The Best Deliver The Results I'm looking for...

In capturing unique, captivating & evocative images I only choose to work with the best equipment, materials and papers to enable me to create and present my work to the highest quality and professional standard that I demand.

Determined in seeking innovative advancement in the imaging area, in 2014 I transitioned from Canon (5D Mk II) to FujiFilm. Some may ask why?..a shift to FujiFilm... it's quite simple when you think about it, Fujifilm has its roots in film, and precision optics, but more importantly for me personally:

INNOVATION, QUALITY, SUPPORT... Most of all an extremely FUN and retro camera to use.

In maintaining my demand for high-quality images, all my editing and image post-production work is undertaken and viewed only on a colour managed EIZO ColorEdge CG277 Graphic monitor. EIZO manufacture the best high-resolution graphic monitors to faithfully reproduce colour, detail and clarity and the most accurate representation of the final print as it would on paper. My workflow commences from import of the X-T2 'RAW' file captures and processing them through Capture One Pro as its capable of extracting the best detail from the X-Trans™ sensors.
