I have had a passion for photography since the age of 13 where I studied photography at high school for 5 years which enabled me to learn many facets of this art and hone my skills in the pre-digital era.  At the age of 15, I was fortunate enough to win a statewide award for a motion blur image that I captured of Motocross champion Jeff Liesk during the Legendary ‘Manjimup 15,000’ Motocross race.

I have had many of images published across Australian Associated Press and Newscorp media outlets that include; The Daily Mail, The West Australian, The Sunday Times, The Australian newspapers to name a few.

I have also been fortunate enough to have had personal surf biographies featured in publications such as STAB Magazine (Photolyfe) and the Inertia. Much of my work has appeared in large online social media platforms such as; Swellnet, Coastal Watch, Surfline, Bureau of Meteorology and many more. With the increasing popularity of digital media, I feel privileged to have had my work published in print media that include hard cover magazines such as Surfing Life and CARVE Mag.

In 2018, I began to enter photography competitions. They’re not really my thing, as competitions are not a motivating factor behind my photography. However, I was overwhelmed with finishing as a finalist in the NIKON 2018 SURF PHOTO of the year award with my image simply titled “PULSE”. This image now hangs in the Australian surf academy and was featured through multiple media outlets including a double page spread in the “The Weekend Australian” magazine. I’ve also had numerous commercial clients, through well respected surf brands utilise my images to promote their products.

Ultimately, it is my passion to portray and paint the ocean in an artistic fashion, that elegantly captures movement, vibrancy, colour, contrast and natural beauty.

I am committed to what I do. I find inspiration through the rhythm of the ocean as I find myself addicted to her mesmerising ways. For me, the ocean…is the pulse of life.
