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.

history of women3I 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.
