I am an international award winning photographer based between Australia and New Zealand with a passion for travel, nature and the ocean.

This passion began during my childhood in the small village of Ogmore-by-Sea in South Wales. I built a darkroom at home and began my photographic journey with my first film camera producing images of the powerful waves crashing on the shoreline rocks. Now, based between Australia and New Zealand, I am surrounded by an incredible environment that provides a magnificent setting for much of my work.

To create the style and feel inherent in my work I make full use of the exquisite light of the early morning and late evening. I often combine this with very long exposures that allow me to capture the variations in light and movement during this time.

I will be adding new images regularly so please visit again soon.

I am also available for mentoring, tutoring and photographic commissions both nationally and internationally. To contact me you can use the form on my 'Contact Me' web page or email me directly at
