'Caught any?'
'Caught any?'

 


I've been taking photos for sixty years, mostly for my work and family. In the past decade I've had the opportunity to travel widely and at length, living in remote locations that offer a wider range of landscapes and subjects than I ever knew existed.

Several friends asked for prints. Some of their friends wanted to buy prints.

Three exhibitions later I've found that many people like my work and get pleasure from hanging my images in their homes and offices. They are also used in books, websites, information displays, art catalogues, travel brochures and newspapers.

My early working life was spent in the Snowy Mountains of NSW, which may explain my visits to Antarctica in pursuit of its amazing colours, wildlife and vastness.

I've learned much from my partner, who's an artist and writer. When we travel, our destinations are largely determined by their visual content, though we see things in different ways. She encourages me to take risks. We depend upon each other for ideas and criticism.

We all have our passions: mine include birds, rocks and enormous skies. It's no surprise that our favourite places include Central Australia and the Kimberley region of Western Australia: we have lived and worked there frequently over the past few decades.
