Hi there and welcome to my Model Mayhem profile and portfolio.
Many thanks for stopping by and I really do hope you enjoy my work.
With a career dating back to 1974 I am arguably one of Queensland’s most respected and accomplished photographers…and I’ll argue that case with anyone willing to take me on… dreadfully competitive also...oh and modest That said, I never stop learning and trying to hone my skills and admire greatly the accomplishments of others.
Photography is a most difficult and humbling task master and requires a tremendous amount more effort than poking about with Photoshop in an attempt to save a badly executed originating image. It actually requires strength of character, personality, imagination, lateral thinking and a tremendous investment in time, energy and money.
I’ve had my ego battered many times and learned to leave it elsewhere when performing my craft. There’s no place for it either as a photographer or a performer and understanding that fact is first and foremost otherwise forget any form of commercial success and dwell in the land of pixies.
I am here on Model Mayhem to create beautiful images outside of my commercial work.
I do not create images that defame, demoralise, humiliate or display submissiveness of women. If you read that into any of my images you might need to see a shrink.
Please do not expect me to pay you as that is beyond absurd unless you are the likes of Sarah Murdoch who I have worked with for three days as I have many outstanding models over the years. Do though expect to receive all images we create in collaboration and fair recompense if the images happen to be sold. Expect the images to be amazing and an asset to your folio and mine. Also expect me to listen to what you want and have to say…otherwise it is not “collaboration.
And expect a most enjoyable, fun and educational experience if you do choose to collaborate with me. For if there is one profound thing I have learned in my career and existence on this planet it is to be happy, for life is a joyous, wonderful and beautiful experience.
So, you wanna shoot with me? Just shoot me a message.
Peace love and enduring happiness
