About me

I’m a full-time freelance photographer based in Victoria. Originally from South Africa my family and I emigrated to country Victoria at age 13. My interests are as diverse as my photography and they often compliment each other well. Photography has given me the opportunity to immerse myself in a wide range of experiences and allowed me to travel and meet amazing people. 

 

During the completion of my Bachelor Degree in Photography, I had the privilege of being mentored by one of Australia’s leading commercial photographers, Sharyn Cairns. I continued to assist Sharyn before moving to rural Victoria where I have since established a career in commercial photography.

I specialise in a wide genre including food, still life, lifestyle and interior photography. I love capturing the small details often missed and strive to capture images with care and consideration, utilising mostly natural light where possible.

My work has been featured online and in several magazines including Fly Life and Sporting Shooter. Some of my clients include Y2 Architecture, Passive Builders, Edwards Provider, Cuvee Chocolate, Lululemon - Doncaster, Min. Studios and Melbourne Cosmetic Acupuncture.

 

When I’m not shooting I spend my time wrangling my handsome hound Rigby, my baby daughter Elkie and my wife Sarah. I enjoy spending time in the Victorian High Country, hiking, fishing and hunting .
