About the Artist

I am an Australian born Photographer and Director who grew up painting and creating until picking up my first camera and falling in love many years ago.

In my 18 year professional career I have had the privilege to travel and live all over the world throughout Europe, US, Asia and Australia. My editorial work has been published in and on the covers of magazines such as  Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Elle, Black & White, Poster, Cream, Noise, Prestige, Cult of Cool, Movex, i-Mag

WestEast, Female, LookBook, BOX, Oyster and many more. 

My personal work which I conceptualise,

 

storyboard and both Creative and art direct

 

attracted the interest of Advertising agencies

 

around the globe.

 

I have been privileged to collaborate with

 

amazing creatives and work with some of my

 

dream brands on Advertising campaigns for

 

Nike, Levis, Sony, Motorola, Moet & Chandon,

 

Mitsubishi, Durex and the Venetian Hotel.

I started Directing film 12 years ago and have directed music videos for no.1 artists for Sony BMG (Australia) and MGM (USA) as well as short films for Sorella lingerie and FOMO land group in 4K.

I conceptualise and art direct all my personal projects and love collaborating with Creatives on others. I do all my own photoshop, editing  and colour grading using Adobe Premiere and have acted as both DOP and Director on many film projects.

In 2011 I  invested in setting up and

designing a 450 sq metre studio in Bali in from

the ground up converting an old garment

factory into an international state of the art

photography and film studio.

 

It incorporates a dual white and black cyclorama

 

studios, hair and makeup room and client chill

 

area and editing facilities in house.

It was great to find young talented Indonesian

 

assistants and train them to use Profoto lighting

 

and Capture one and shoot with my Hasselblad

 

medium format 503cw and Leaf back which they

 

had never seen. Over the past 9 years I taught

 

and encouraged them to shoot and learn

 

photoshop and some have moved on to go solo

 

which is very satisfying but the original

 

assistant Theo is now the Studio manager/ and

 

 

product photographer and a skilled retoucher

 

and runs things when I am away. 

I am happiest creating art and also design and build custom motorbikes and japanese style furniture.

I am currently based in Sydney  and in my free time indulge my other passions... Surfing, Painting, music and riding Horses and Motorbikes.
