Welcome to my photography home page.
I'm an amateur photographer based in Albany, Western Australia particularly interested in portrait and landscape photogaphy.
As far as my choice of media goes I'm equally at home with digital or film but find that the re-emergence of film has reconnected us not only to a wide range of traditional processes but opens up a huge range of options for the creative photographer.
A group of Albany photographers have recently formed the Albany Film Users Group (Inc) which is now a fully fledged camera club with a strong emphasis on creative photography, alternative processing and community involvement.
We have our own studio and darkroom situated in the center of town which is open to members 7 days a week.
Our group is working with other organisations in Albany, recording events and providing images for the Anzac Commemorations that are being held in late October/early November.
Any photographers who may be interested in finding out more about using, developing and printing with film as well as digital post processing are more than welcome to join our very active group.
For more information, please email me.
I think the best pictures are often on the edges of any situation, I don’t find photographing the situation nearly as interesting as photographing the edges.
