About Me

I am a photographer who lives on the northern beaches of Sydney, Australia. Much of my photography focuses on natural and urban landscapes,  travel and street photography. As a university professor and climate change researcher, I have a strong interest in the natural environment and the sustainability of ecosystems and planetary health.

My photography journey began more than thirty years ago growing up on Sydney Harbour, capturing the beauty of the ocean, as well as fishing expeditions to Australia’s tropical north and Papua New Guinea. In the 2010s I rediscovered my love of photography visiting major cities in North America, Europe and Asia. Embracing mirrorless, small format cameras, my interest in photography has grown into a consuming passion as my knowledge of the technical aspects of composition and processing has developed.

In recent years, the pandemic has led me to shift my attention towards local seascape and landscape compositions and explore the creative possibilities of  waterfalls and the beauty of beaches and headlands at sunrise and sunset. I have also sought to marry my research interest in climate change with photographic projects exploring the fossil fuel industry and its physical impacts on the landscape and society. This includes exploring ways to extend my photographic vision into artistic and abstract compositions which address the realities of the vulnerability of the natural environment and the changing landscape we are now living within.
