Street photography for me is like an addiction. And with any addiction there are highs and lows. It is also about inserting yourself into a situation and becoming invisible. Observing people, their interactions, shapes, movement, colours, light and shadows. It’s about ‘seeing’ these things and capturing them. What I love most is to lose myself in my invisibility and meld into the scene. It’s almost a fugue-like state, like I’m not there, or like a fly on the wall, or wearing an invisibility cloak. And this state is what fuels the addiction.
I am a self taught street photographer living in a small coastal village south of Sydney, Australia who has an addiction to street photography and travel (with my partner-in-crime and fellow street photographer Gerry Orkin - check out Gerry's awesome work).

My style is inspired by the Australian environment and the place where I live - the strong light, colours and of course the blue sky which is ever present.
I like to create clean photos without clutter that stand out for their colour, shapes and movement. I typically use blue sky to create a background across which colourful shapes float.
Traveling elsewhere often presents a challenge as blue skies are limited in other parts of the world. I therefore seek out colour, clean backgrounds, movement, gestures, interesting moments, humour and quirkiness.
Have an upcoming project? I'd love to collaborate with you! I will also be conducting monthly street photography workshops in Sydney with Gerry Orkin - commencing in late February 2018.
