Divine Light

As a photographer who loves the game of golf, I regularly find myself wandering in some of the world’s most beautiful playgrounds. I don’t always get to play or shoot in perfect conditions, but in my imagination I often wonder how the Golfing Gods would illuminate the contours, fairways and greens of the once wild land that has been tamed for our pleasure. The “Divine Light” series is my interpretation of this exploration and is currently on display at Links Hope Island golf club.

Vantage

A stylish lifestyle shoot for a new Gold Coast development called for a breezy, relaxed feel. Great talent, tight art direction and good collaboration with the A Team made for a fun couple of days on location.

Backstage Pass

I have just finished shooting the new show at Australian Outback Spectacular on the Gold Coast. As well as the official program and marketing images, I embarked on a personal project to document the backstage action and training of the horses and riders. It has been a rewarding experience to spend time with the highly skilled team and their beautiful animals, and to capture the relationships and hard work that happens behind the scenes of such a major production. I was collaborating with my assistant who is also an accomplished photographer and we have assembled a collection of images that we are very proud of.

Diamonds at the Beach

Stones Diamonds chose a beautiful beachside house for this year's fashion shoot. Add a great model and team and it hardly seems like work.

Take a Seat

A new range of commercial seating was being launched to the Architecture and Design community and some slightly "out of context" images were part of the brief. To quote Arnold Newman - "Photography is 10% inspiration and 90% moving furniture". Too true on this shoot, but inspiration and some cool locations made it all worthwhile.
