I have 46 years experience as a press photographer, having begun my career in South Australia at The Advertiser in Adelaide before moving to Canberra, where for a total of 27 years, worked at The Canberra Times. 
During that period I covered an amazing variety of events, met some very interesting people and developed my photography and people skills along the way. Some of the news events I have covered, have included visits to Australia by Royal families, US Presidents, Clinton, Bush and Obama and also religious and business leaders from around the world. During the course of working for newspapers I have had extensive experience in covering natural disasters like bushfires and floods, including the Canberra firestorm in 2003 and the Thredbo landslide in 1997. I have covered many sporting events, including regional, national and international competitions in Rugby, Soccer, Athletics and Cricket, to name a few. 
Motorsport has been one of my passions and I've been fortunate enough to cover most forms of the sport including Formula One, V8 Supercars, Rallying, Sports Cars, Speedway, MotoGP and Go Karts.
Upon leaving the newspaper industry, I have been able to utilise the various skills that I have learned.
Creating treasured family portraits, either at home or on location and small informal weddings are events that I now enjoy.
I am often commissioned to cover corporate and media related events by various organisations. 
These clients include, Royal Australian College of General Practitioners, Mental Health Australia, Australian Children's Television Foundation, Australian Maritime Safety Authority, A League Soccer, BIOGEN, Calvary Hospital, The Content Group and the Order of Australia Association.

Another area I am passionate about is photographing food, originally to accompany the newspaper's restaurant reviews but now I offer my services to restaurants who are in need of quality food images for their online content.
