Life and Philosophy.
I am a photographer. I am an artist.
I am established in Melbourne, Australia where I live a beautiful life with my partner Taryn and our daughter Colour.
My vision as an artist was born in the shadows of an unconventional childhood and was raised by an enlightened adult life. My philosophies and personal strength allow me to observe and project striking images of my subjects using the mechanics of my equipment teamed with the instinctive qualities of my craft, and nourished by qualities within myself.
Emotional experiences and a structured intelligence allow me to recognise the entire make-up of a character, model or place to better imprint it on the film of life.
Finding the truth of a moment comes intuitively to me, and with a subtle, but pointed approach I am able to gain depth of any subject with tact. From here, birth is given to unique life portraits, rendered by light in an expert and human fashion.
Throughout my career I have satisfied the varied demands of broad spectrum of clients with this outlook, who, for the most part are looking to be represented truthfully and with the utmost respect for their own life’s voyage. As a result, my thirst and dedication to revealing the true identity of a person and their environment – through photography – have made me a recognised specialist in portraiture. These skills are also transferable in bringing to life a product, event or moment.
My art is driven by true passion and my work, by my humility behind the camera – these two attributes come together to create the perfect image every time.
Merci et à bientôt,
A little more about my work...
WHAT I PHOTOGRAPH
I shoot commercial quality stills that capture the essence of movement of motivation.
Specialising in portrait and creative composites – for sponsors, website, editorial, social media or advertising.
Sports portrait or action photography offers me a vast creative platform, whether shot on location or in the controlled environment of the studio.
Your portrait can capture the essence of who you are as a person and what makes you successful in your vocation.
A photograph can also illustrate the depth of your business, highlighting its philosophy, ethic and worth.
My ability to photograph and represent elite business people draws from my background and
understanding of the type of personal journey it takes to become who you are in business.
A simple headshot in a studio, staff or company culture images, or corporate events on location – I have tailored packages that suit your needs.
I would be happy to send you a personal quote or more information.
Social Media is the easiest and most powerful tool to reach your customer in real time.
And, it is the one medium where a picture really can speak a thousand words – Facebook, Instagram, Google+, Twitter, Pinterest – well designed photograph can instantly attract attention.
My creativity is for hire here and I can service all industries.
Whether you need a regular stock of new images and an ongoing relationship, or occasional content photography through short sessions.
Speak to me today about your options.
When I started photography I always liked to capture raw emotions and for me, none were better portrayed than on the musical stage.
I played blues guitar in a band for a long time, which sparked a desire to snap images of performers. I went on to shoot gigs and concerts in France. At the same time I also plunged myself into the world of movies and cinema – as it goes hand in hand with music.
I read body language and emotions, this, coupled with the understanding the flow of music or a scene allows me to intuitively capture these performances. I love to showcase the essence of an artist this way.
If you are an artist, musician, actor, entertainer or agency, I would be excited to work with you.
What a wonderful subject for photography!
Yet, it is probably the one that carries the highest propensity to capture moments of gigantic spontaneity and there is no coaching involved in kid’s portrait photography.
No matter the age, from newborn to young children, they are what they are, and do what they do. It takes a grounded patience to capture these moments in their truest light.
I offer studio sessions, or for a more personal photographic story, I can come to your home. Parties, sport and music all provide a great scene for memories.
Life - Events
Have you ever thought about having somebody by your side or even hidden, able to capture moments of your life?
I think of life events being scenes of a movie all played in this rectangle I use to capture emotions, actions – moments reflecting your existence.
Sounds a little like reality TV, but I would love to think of it as reality photography; taking hold of the time and place you are in.
Are you wanting to shoot your proposal to your partner, no matter the outcome the images will be worth it, no? Do you want me to cover a party, a dinner be a fly on the wall archiving special times or occasions?
A birth, or a graduation, at the beach, in a park or on the streets of Melbourne, Paris, New York, I have the right attitude and experience to be as conscientious as needed.
Please get in touch with me and we can discuss your next chapter of life and how we can seize it in time!
