About Me

Thank you for visiting my account!
I built my career working in marketing and advertising management with degrees in marketing, communications and psychology. Experience included supervising model selection and photo shoots for large multinational television and magazine campaigns.

I started my own company in the early '90's consulting in the consumer magazine industry in categories such as; sport, sports fashion, swimming and several titles with specific men's and women's lifestyle focus. I worked with Australian Penthouse at the height of its success in this country and provided the initial R&D and ongoing marketing for Inside Sport, Australia's leading sporting magazine.

I was hired to revamp Australia's leading swimming publication which changed my career direction, took me into journalism and photography, where I was accredited at Olympic and World Championship level. Photography has always been a passion and gradually colleagues and subjects provided so much positive feedback to take it to a more professional level once I had moved away from the competitive sports arena.

I love working with the composition of nature and the human body, preferably a natural look, light on make-up, style focused black & white, some fashion (not necessarily high fashion), art nude and of course swimwear. British cult photographer David Hamilton was an early influence on my style but Aussie photographer Peter Coulson is a current major influence. I have much experience in creative and as a stylist from my swimwear importing and magazine days. 

I work from my home/studio on Cremorne Point on the harbour in Sydney, it is a century old sandstone terrace with a beautiful pool area, wooden deck and aged fencing, perfect for any number of different photographic concepts! There are many ideal beach and natural locations nearby although I travel regularly around Australia especially Queensland and Victoria but will also visit SE Asia, Europe and the USA.

My standard rate for a straightforward shoot in and around my studio is a very reasonable A$125/ph, minimum two hours shooting inclusive of producing the best retouched images from the shoot. I will consider TPF is the model and concept interests me and particularly to help a promising new talent. 
Note this rate is for personal/portfolio use NOT commercial work as for a quote.

Please drop me a message with your concepts / ideas if you would like to work with me!

p.s.  I do my own editing so do NO accept friend requests from Retouchers. I see no reason to "collect" friends so please only those that have had some written contact and we are likely or have collaborated together.
