About Me

“Rock and roll music, if you like it, if you feel it, you can't help but move to it. That's what happens to me. I can't help it.”
[Elvis Presley]

Like the dancer that must dance, the painter that must paint. Like many great proverbial artists throughout history, “I” must make photographs. I have this burning ambition. A dream I’ve expressed to very few. One I feel I can deny no longer. I must create something meaningful, something wonderful. A life work to quiet my soul.

I’m not interested in porn, or glamour like Playboy, Picture and Zoo magazine. I mean, I can look at these and appreciate beautiful bodies or figures, locations, set design, or a photographer’s skills, but these don’t speak to me. They don’t speak to my mind or my soul. They are cold and emotionless and speak to our carnal desires. They don’t make me move. Fine art does. It makes me move. It leaves me unable to sit still. Let me rephrase Elvis’ quote above: “Fine art nude images, if you like them, if you feel them, you can't help but be moved by them. That's what happens to me. I can't help it. I simply must create.” [Brett smile]

If you feel my pain, if you can understand my passion, you may be someone I need to work with. Please let me know.

I’ve worked professionally across Australia and Europe and been published around the world since 1987. I won my first international photo competition in 1988 and I’ve worked in most genres of photography from Press and television camera operator, to Wedding, Commercial, Advertising Portrait and Fine art. I moved to Melbourne Australia from Europe twelve months ago and am now looking to re-establish myself here. So please, if you’d like to work with me, or you have ideas or an image of your own you’d like to explore, get in touch.

I'm very professional and straight to the point with my dealings and don't tolerate no shows, poor communication or lack of respect and professionalism. I have a pretty strict two strikes and you’re out policy and I want to get all this out upfront as I’ve had issues booking internet models in the past. I’ll treat you and your time with the level of respect that each and every one of us deserves, and I expect the same in return. I also don’t like to waste time with a lot of back and forwards email chatter, either, until after we’ve established a professional or productive relationship. I do like to organise a go see or meet and greet to break the ice before first shoots but either way, let’s just get to the point and get to the shoot.

On the Nude:
We are all equals in the nude …
The attraction to the art nude, for me, is more about the removal of meaning than it is about any established semiotics of the nude. It’s about control … the control of meaning. These images, to me, are about the paring down, or removal of the meanings of the clothes. To clear the canvas, so to speak. A nude can be imbued with gender – or not. It can signify race – or not, but unadorned, in our basic form, we are all equals in the nude. No culture or wealth. No status, occupation, or education. A blank canvas, a basic form, pared down to the individual person. To me that is exciting. A starting point, a simplicity, a purity … from which I can add meaning, like colour to a canvas, to construct narratives of beauty.

I want my works to act as kind of visual cues. Thought starters. To me, they represent the questions, not the answers. I want them to trigger emotional or psychological responses.

Basically, I like people and I like story telling. I like exploring a theme, exploring emotions, the mind and the psyche, and I like nothing more than telling a story through images. I have a head full of ideas for images I want to create and Fine-art projects I want to pursue, and I’m always looking for models.

I’m here to create something extraordinary. Let's achieve great things together.
