My passion for 'boundaryless' thinking, mixed with my fascination in the old masters (my wonderland is the Louvre in Paris) is a catalyst for my love of deep, rich, moody imagery. I strive to create art that is very much controlled in detail but arrives from the furthermost edges of my imagination.

I love to share my passion via  teaching workshops on creative photography and lighting, and I'm also a passionate long time judge of the NZIPP Iris Awards, The Portrait Masters Awards and the Nikon D-Photo Amateur Awards.
