Not only have i spent my career making photographs i have also taught in the vocational training industry for several years, teaching photography to journalism students, both at Swinburne TAFE and a private college.

For a while i taught at a beijing university.

I would like to sit down with you in a cafe or bar and help you understand the things in photography that mystify you, answer your questions about lighting, gear and style and look through your portfolio and help with direction. Email me your questions and what you want to know and arrange a time.

From 2014 to 2017 I was in the Philippines. This is an introduction to the work i made there. From street shooting, ecclesiastical architecture to male nudes.
This is a collection of the first 18 years of my career, being the analogue years. So many photographs and projects are included. After this I went away and reconsidered how to approach digital.
From 2011 to 2014 I lived in Beijing and toured around China. This is the book of the 11 projects i did there. Please note that this book does contain quite a lot of male nudes.
God+Warriors was a project investigating the perfect male body. I posed men in the forms of sculpture and gave them sporting equipment. Please note the men are naked.
