In Perth, I stay in a 1968 caravan, fondly known as the Lemon Delicious, in a backyard in South Fremantle. Other times, you’ll find me in my office in Denmark on the South Coast, where I do my post-production work and mentorship sessions online.
I haven’t been counting, but I know that I’ve photographed (at least) tens of thousands of artworks including paintings, works on paper (framed and unframed), multi media works and objects made of glass, metal, wood, ceramics, pop sticks, human hair, echidna quills, infectious diseases and much more. I have shot the backs of paintings, cracks in paintings, used UV light to shoot under paintings and more than once, shot immersive sound-only artworks – nice speakers!
I’ve taught as a sessional lecturer in Studio Practice at Edith Cowan University as part of the Photomedia degree. Despite hating studio work as a student, I’ve come to understand that being able to control my own lighting is a key element to being able to deliver projects in any conditions.
I swim all year round at Greens Pool – if you follow my Instagram account, you can watch this incredible bit of coastline change throughout the seasons and hear about my friend Wobert the Wobbegong and Mr Grumpy, the Octopus.
