What elevates something ordinary into something visually extraordinary?

As a photographer and photographic artist, I am passionate about sharing the beauty I observe in the natural world.


I like to capture what is beautiful to me about the subject – it could be its form, colour, texture, pattern or the mood created by an interplay of light.


These elements feature strongly in my photographic artworks, while my compositions are carefully considered to capture a distinct aspect or tell a story. With this, I hope to encourage the viewer to see something they may not have noticed before – or provoke a thought or a feeling.

I like to create a timeless, mysterious, atmospheric energy in my work. And to me, that is what can elevate something ordinary into something visually extraordinary.


I'm passionate about photographing wildlife in their

natural habitat and capturing the beauty I see in flora, faunalandscapes, waterscapes and cloudscapes.


Recently, I won a 1st Place in the wildlife category at the 13th Annual International Color Awards and received three Honorable Mentions as well as being nominated 11 times. I've accomplished further accolades at both the 2019 International Photography Awards and the 2019 Australian Photography Awards. I've exhibited my work at The Other Art Fair presented by Saatchi Art in both Melbourne and Sydney, at the Brunswick Street Gallery and at the Centre for Contemporary Photography's 2019 Ilford CCP Salon. 


I was born and educated in Melbourne, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Graphic Communication from Monash University. I am a Melbourne-based creative and self taught photographic artist.
