About

Hello and thanks for stopping by. I am a Sydney, Australia based photographer, who like many others works in the margins between day and night waiting for that special moment when the true beauty of a location appears briefly. My work is from the heart, not grounded in rules of composition, or fine details of technique.

Living close to the sea, seascapes are my most common subject. but I spend a lot of time in the Snowy Mountains so they are regular features. I have also taken many flower shots over the years, some of which are shown here.

Many of the images on this site were taken with Hasselblad film and digital cameras. I now use a Nikon with Zeiss and adapted Leica lenses, and an Olympus EM 1. Time has caught up with me and the Hasselblad was just too heavy. Many of my images end up square. Years of shooting with film Hasselblads has left me very comfortable seeing compositions in squares. Equipment is always secondary, but I believe that I have the the best tools for my photography.

I hope that you enjoy the galleries. Any and all feedback is welcome. I constantly strive to improve my rendering of the world around me.
