About

My artistic desire started at age seven when I realised that I had a knack for copying cartoon characters from comic books. At age 10 my uncle Dan introduced me to photography with a Box Brownie camera and taught me how to use it. He also introduced me to his real passion, cinematography and the dark room. At fifteen I started oil painting, critiqued by my aunt Beth who encouraged me to paint wildlife in action.

I migrated with my wife and two children, to Australia in 1982. Over the years I've enjoyed a little sculpting, moulding, carving and glass etching. I am now based in Brisbane where my love of the visual arts continues to grow. My passion today is for creating Photo Art. Also known as Conceptual Photography, it is one in which the artist tells a story while invoking emotion within the viewer. The artist may place the characters in fictional environments to achieve this end.

As an artistic photographer I get to capture people and their passion's, for their family, sport or project. I also get to share my talent, creating award winning images. I am proud to have had my work published and displayed at the world's most esteemed and prestigious Musee du Louvre in Paris, France.
