I have been a professional musician for over 25 years, 16 of those serving full time as a member of the Australian Army Band Corps. My interest in photography started at high school as a hobby, but over the years the passion has grown. In the year 2000 I purchased my first SLR camera, and put well over 100 rolls of film through it in the first 12 months. I became so well known to the local developer that he allowed me in with him and showed me how to use the machines to develop and print my own films. I was entirely self taught until 2014 when I decided that photography was where my career was heading, so in May 2014 I signed up for a Diploma of Photo Imaging through Commercial Arts Training College (CATC) Brisbane and graduated in 2016. During 2016 I developed an interest in aerial photography/videography and in late 2016 received my Remote Pilot Licence through the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA). My other interests include motorcycling, 4wding, camping and watching motorsports. I am married with six children, so life is busy. I really can't pigeon hole my style of photography, as I am interested in many styles including landscape, portraiture, events, sports, aerial, media and documentary, nature and wildlife, macro and still life. I still get excited every time I pick up the camera, knowing that as a photographer I am stamping my own part of history.
