I’m a former newspaper reporter and magazine editor. I teach photography at TAFE NSW and shoot for stock companies and magazines. I also write and play the cello badly. Very badly. I love rain and snow and walking … preferably up hills in the rain and/or snow which I believe comes from the fact that I currently live in country NSW where it’s dry, hot and flat. Really hot. Really dry and really flat.
I also love to play in the garden and have turned a back yard tennis court (stupid things tennis courts!) into a vegetable garden. I then grow things, photograph them and then eat them! It’s a triple win.
Other than that I’m an incorrigible traveler mostly to places that are cold and wet and have hills.
When it comes to photography, I think Cartier-Bresson had the right idea. Mostly. Learn to see things. Not just look, but see. And have a good camera handy to catch what you see. The other thing I’d add is never stop looking. Or learning.
