I've been taking photos for as long as I can remember but became more serious about it in 1999 when I got my first SLR Camera - I now primarily take digital photos using a Pentax Digital SLR.

In mid 2001 I began studying IT & this enticed me to branch out from photography into the world of digital imaging, web design & graphic design. Since then I've created various website's, business cards, flyers, cards, calendars etc as well as retouching photos & creating photo collages. I worked for a bit over 2 years as the graphic artist at The Glen Innes Examiner (newspaper) but left at the end of January 2008 to study Certificate IV in Information Technology (Website Design) in Coffs Harbour. I relocated to Gosford in mid 2008 where I have done some freelance photography, a stint as a portrait photographer, some casual youth work & I completed my Certificate IV in IT (Website Design) in June 2009.

My main photographic focus is taking Band Photos (mainly in the eastern states of Australia), I specialise in capturing live performances but am slowly branching out into doing natural light photo shoots as well.

I also do a range of other photography including:

1. Weddings
2. Children & Families
3. Community Events
4. Landscapes & Nature

I've had my work published in various places since 1999 including:

1. Websites: including Steve Edmonds Band, Troy Cassar-Daley, NoKTuRNL,
    Propaganda Klann, Paul hicks
2. Myspace pages: including Pennyblack, Swivelhead, Groovejar, The Re-Mains,
