HUSBAND. FATHER. Photographer.


To me, photography is the best kind of storytelling.  It’s how I like to look back on some of life’s best bits. 

In terms of style, you can safely group me under the ‘fly on the wall’ doco-style photographer.  I prefer to capture you guys just being yourselves.  Think less posing and more documenting things visually.

I always find the real things tell the best story.

As for my story, I'm just a normal dude with a love of breakfast foods, a decent pale ale and chocolate milkshakes. The other loves in my life - Archie, my little boy and CJ, my beautiful wife. They're the biggest part of my story so far.  And when I’m not clicking buttons on my cameras, I’m usually out trekking through the woods around the Peninsula on imaginary bear hunts with Arch.

So, that’s a little about me.  I'd love to hear more about you and how you’re planning to ring in your big day or mark time with your family.

If you like what you’ve seen around here and think we’d make a good team, then let's have a chat and see if I'm the one for you. No pressure, no hurry. Feel free to get in touch and we can take it from there.

Photographing Archie from day dot has been something I’ve really enjoyed about being his dad. I’ll sit for hours and trawl back through images of him over the last two incredible years.  Some make me laugh, others turn me into a big softy.  And yes, like everyone says, they change by the minute.  The importance of documenting those real moments in his life, whether we’re stomping through bush looking for koalas or just hanging around home drinking ‘chocolate teas’, resonates with me so much more now. 

I’m really fortunate to be able to document similar moments for other families that hopefully they too can share, look back on and feel the ole’ ticker beating a little harder. 

Here’s a little selection of my family photography.

Albums & Fine Art Prints

We have a tendency to leave our favourite photos locked away on a hard drive.  Fine art albums and prints are an incredible way to display and reflect on your images.  You can read more about these here.

I am more than happy to work with you to tailor a package to suit your needs.  Get in touch and we'll take it from there.

I love to travel and will do so for an absolute minimum cost for both wedding and family photography.  Happy to send through more info on this and answers to other FAQ's - just ask.

If you have any questions please give me a shout over at the contact page and we can arrange to grab a drink or set up a time to chat.
