As a 12 year old my first encounter with photography was my discovery of a Fujica V2 Rangefinder camera hidden away in the linen closet. This camera was a gift from a friend of the family and neither of my parents knew how to use it. I convinced my Mother to take me down to the local Chemist where the Pharmacist kindly gave me some rudimentary instructions on how to operate the camera.
At Mt Carmel Boarding school in Charters Towers I expanded my photographic skills by learning the art of B/W film development and print making. After leaving school and joining the Air Force I upgraded my trusty Fujica for my first SLR, an Olympus OM10. This was later upgraded to an OM1sp and was used largely for family photos. In 2004 a thief broke into my house and made off with all of my camera equipment. The fortunate side effect from this robbery was my ability to upgrade to a Digital SLR. This one act was all that I need to rekindle my love of photography and I have progressed from a Canon 300D, thru a 20D and am now using a 1D MkIV. I also posess a collection of fine Canon L series lenses.
This site represents a collection of my favorite photos to date from around Australia and the countries my wife and I have traveled to. I hope you enjoy viewing these photos as much as I enjoyed the journey of taking them.
