About me

I’m a photographer. Heck, you already knew that!

Here are some things you may not know about me….

I have run my own business for nearly 20 years and have been working with other sole traders and creatives on their businesses for the last 8 years.

I am an experienced collaborator who brings my whole self to my work. I aim for excellence on all projects but never at the cost of harming relationships, the planet or the wellbeing of my teams.

I’ve studied Fine Art History, Aboriginal Studies, Photography and Communications – in that order. The journey of learning whatever piques my interest is ongoing and lifelong. My current studies are in leadership and empathy training.

I run workshops and professional development for artists and arts organisations.

My love of workshops has led me to run more in-depth, multiple-day retreat programs in the beautiful surrounds of NewFarm Denmark.

I’m passionate about representing artists’ work with integrity and strive to understand an artwork to convey it clearly through photographs.

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.
