As soon as I hold a camera I become creative. My mind shifts into that of an artist and I see the world differently. I become completely absorbed. My large scale photo essay series was a pandemic joy project, and done in conjunction with The Australian Centre for Photography, and it was shortlisted twice – Sue and Rosa – in the people category for Australian Photographer of the Year (Australian Photography Magazine), 2023. Rosa – Moorookan Queen was also shortlisted in the Australasian Top Emerging Photographers Award, presented by Fujifilm, portrait category, 2023. It can be viewed here ~> Tropical Belle. My latest project is a photo documentary series of the floods that devastated Eugowra and Forbes, NSW, Australia in late 2022. It can be viewed here -> Flood Documentary Photo Series. I tell the stories of 5 people.
Below is a selection of my photography.
