Having been inspired to explore a career in nature photography by my father’s travels in Antarctica, I now pursue a passion for capturing and sharing the wonder of the natural world.
After graduating from the Queensland College of Art, I first worked in commercial photography, before taking up a position as photographer with the Queensland National Parks and Wildlife Service, where I worked for 8 years.
I moved on from that part of my career in 1994 and my work is now published widely in books, magazines and paper products. I’ve had the opportunity to photograph extensively across Australia and in Africa, Alaska, Patagonia and Antarctica and have introduced many people to the world’s great wildlife and landscape destinations first hand, through small group photography tours, predominantly to Africa and Antarctica and the Pacific.
I trust you will enjoy your visit to my site.
