I am a freelance photographer based in Australia, on Sydney's northern beaches. I have had an exciting and varied career working as a press photographer in London, freelancer in the United States, and senior staff photographer at Australia's foremost magazine publisher, Australian Consolidated Press. My work has taken place in the studio as well as on location around the world – all this after earning a diploma in professional photography at the Polytechnic of Central London.
My photographs have been published in magazines such as Gourmet Traveller, Australian House & Garden, Your Garden, Home Beautiful, Woman's Day, Women's Weekly, Belle, Cosmopolitan and Qantas' inflight magazine, The Australian Way.
My work has also appeared online with The New York Times. My business and commercial photography has appeared in other significant magazines that have been discontinued, including The Bulletin and Australian Business Magazine (ABM). In the United States, my photos of gardens and food appeared in Sunset Magazine.
Books have been another medium for my work. I focused on food in Ten Speed Press's Low Carb Gourmet cookbook, as well as Weldon Owen's series of "chunky" cookbooks and numerous publications of Murdoch Books. Thomas Cook, London, hired me to produce all photos in two Sydney travel guides. My food and interior photographs are also available from StockFood, the German food media agency and image library.
In regards to style, I like to work in a contemporary manner using as much natural light as possible. My forte is versatility, while working quickly and productively under pressure – I am accustomed to deadlines and aware of the very different styles required by various clients. I also come up with lots of ideas and think outside the square.
On my tours I give professional advice, help solve photographic problems, offer on-the-spot critiques, and encourage the camaraderie among those who share the same passion. All skill levels are welcome. Just bring your enthusiasm and crop out life’s boring bits.
