About Me

Not long after getting my first real camera I saw the images of Mary Ellen Mark and discovered quickly I was drawn to the genre of street photography and particularly its intersection with documentary and travel photography styles. 

Home is Perth, Western Australia, and I enjoy exploring the culture of its beaches and coastal communities. 

My work focuses on capturing details and moments, emotions and interactions; I aim to create photographs that pose a question which remains unanswered in the fleeting moment it takes to capture the image.

In my spare time I volunteer with the Perth based Shutterpaws Volunteer Photography group. We photograph rescue animals to help with their successful rehoming.
