"Photography as an alchemical journey of connection."
An Australian fine art photographer, I work primarily with black and white film. What interests me is the way photography can reach into the depths of the 'soul' of something, allowing a pathway to connection to that which is both within us and greater than us. 
Whether that be portraiture or an exploration of windows or a collaborative work inspired by Nijinsky or the lyrebird, I am interested in the essence of things and the mystery within and beyond. 

I also mentor photographers and teach 1-on-1.  This has proven a more effective way for people to learn and to take their photography to a higher level."
