First and foremost I’m a husband and father, based out of the mountainside town of Te Anau, in the South Island of New Zealand.

Originally from Wollongong Australia, in 2012 photography came into my life and completely changed the way I view the world. I’ve since fallen in love with this art and traversed the globe, pursuing rare and illusive moments of atmosphere and light. Since late 2014, I have been working full time as a landscape photographer, hosting photography workshops and guiding tours all over the world, as well as shooting for various brands and clients.

Over the years I’ve developed a love and appreciation for the wilderness and the natural environment, something I took for granted most of my life. Through my work, I don’t strive to make ‘pretty’ or popular photo’s, but attempt to capture and convey the thoughts and emotions that I experience outdoors and through life in general. It’s here that I find my inspiration and hope in an endless pursuit of trying to capture the overwhelming sights, sounds and sublime presence that is found outdoors.

I love teaching and began creating online courses to help those who cant make it to my physical workshops. Through my courses I hope to encourage, inspire and build on the skills of photographers who share my passion for the outdoors and capturing its beauty.
