I’m a former newspaper reporter and magazine editor. I teach photography and media at TAFE NSW and shoot for stock companies and magazines. I also write books, freelance for magazines and play the cello badly. Very badly. My neighbour yells at me on a regular basis to stop playing. And she’s deaf!
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. My ultimate aim is to buy a farm before I metaphorically “buy the farm”.
Other than that I’m an incorrigible traveler mostly to places that are cold, wet and have hills and I like walking. There’s something particularly head-clearing about walking up hills on your own.
When it comes to photography, I think Cartier-Bresson had the right idea. Learn to see things. Not just look, but see. And have a good camera handy to catch what you see.
If you have a writing or photo job you’d like me to help you with, please fill in the contact form and I’ll get back to you. (And that’s me at the back with my arms crossed because like all photographers I don’t like my picture being taken!)
