About Me

Firstly, view

VIEW and join the forums for any questions on underwater fashion

Just moved back to MELBOURNE for a few months.

I'm a marine biologist and international award winning underwater wildlife photographer. I've had my works in exhibitions around the globe including Melbourne, Sydney, Kuala Lumpur, Chicago, New Jersey and Indonesia . My wildlife work has been featured by various international publications/organizations (print and E-magazines) including New Scienist, Walkerly, XRay, Scuba Diver Australasia, Asian Geographic and the National Geographic. I'm currently based in CAIRNS. I've started shooting models underwater in preparation for a new exhibition focusing on fine art and conceptual underwater work.

I believe that quality photography is the result of a good working relationship between photographer and model. I'm currently looking for models interested in TF* work - preferably on an on-going basis.

Photography should be an enjoyable experience so expect to have a lot of laughs, a glass or two of wine and an overall good time. I also require to catch up with potential models for a coffee before the shoot - it just helps to clarify the overall goals/ideas behind the shoot. (and to make sure your not a screaming diva)

Underwater modeling is difficult. Models have to be able to comfortably open their eyes underwater and appear natural/relaxed.

What to expect from me: Models working with me will recieve 5-10 edited images.

Please feel free to contact me on 0413 099 472 for any inquiries.
