About Me

I am an non-commercial photographer from Melbourne.

I approach photoshoots with a professional attitude and respect model's wishes and safety at all times.

Although I have access to a wide range of pro level photographic gear, unfortunately I no longer have access to my own studio facility, and thus I tend to do most of my shoots now on location without my studio lights. This means I usually shoot in forests, beaches, public gardens and anywhere else I discover on my travels.

I am an older guy who spends much of his spare time thinking about and exploring all aspects of the photographic process and scouting for locations.

I approach shoots with models with the prime aim of exploring the creative process both mentally and physically, and hopefully create some awesome but natural looking imagery.

I have a kind, patient and quiet personality and always look for the best in people, but I do insist on good written communication prior to the shoot.

If I send an offer to do a shoot with you, please at the very least, reply to it so I can get on and offer another model the opportunity to work with me.

Although I do not get time to do enough model shoots to be at a pro level at directing models, I do spend many hours before a shoot planning locations and developing ideas that would potentially work well with that particular model.

As a general rule I don't do outdoor art nude shoots during school holidays or weekends as kids tend to turn up in unexpected places and I prefer to not be having to worry about them and finding suitable outdoor locations at those times near Melbourne is difficult.

As I do not get paid for my imagery, I have a limited annual budget so please don't be offended if I have gone over my budget and can't do a paid shoot with you.

I define my sensual art not as sexuality per se but rather as a fascinating, aesthetic exploration of the female form, the freedom and empowerment which the nude form can bring to women, and its infinite representations given the enormous possibilities of differences between women, how they view and relate to their own bodies, their own individual personalities, and then how the body can be rendered in various environments with ever changing lighting.

I am not interested in turning images into artificial clones of commercial beauty - to me, a person's individuality and imperfections is far more important.

If you are a model, feel free to contact me if you have ideas or if you would like to do a shoot with me.

Finally, a big thank you to the many models I have worked with, every shoot has been fantastic and I have learnt much from each of you and the process of planning and doing the shoot. Photography is a continual process of exploration, spontaneous creativity, problem solving and learning, and you all deserve the utmost of respect for what you bring to these shoots, no matter whether you are an experienced model or not.

Thank you again to you all.
