A Car Enthusiast Armed with a Camera

Cars and Photography, they work so well together!

Throughout my full galleries you'll find photography of various subjects from many locations I've visited, both from around the world and within our beautiful country. Some photographers find their strong points in setting up scenes, preparing the lighting, and capturing that moment. I take pride in making use of what is around me already, by seeing what is there in my own unique way, and capturing that. Photography is a rather subjective matter, and everybody has their own opinions and styles. By trade I am a graphics designer, working for an online marketing company based in Bondi Junction. It is rare that I will manipulate my photos by removing elements out of my photos (or adding others in to it). When it comes to editing, I tend to stick with Adobe Lightroom and make my colour adjustments there. The only time I will use Adobe Photoshop to manipulate my photography is when making a composite of multiple photos, or by request of a client. Such as with Light Painting in order to layer and mask, or to remove blemishes off a face as per request (I won't otherwise, I feel they add character and are part of who a person is).

When I am not working or taking photos, I'm usually found driving the streets of the greater Sydney region, or running amuck with my friends. My greatest source of motivation and inspiration.

Clearing the Highway

Clearing the Highway

A big Snow Plow clears the Dalton Highway in Fairbanks, Alaska. The Dalton Highway is the road the famous American Ice Road Truckers use. It is a beautiful and long road, and leads up to the Arctic Circle. I travelled here over New Years 2013-2014.

A Farmer in Hoi An

A Farmer in Hoi An

A farmer walks through his field in Hoi An, Vietnam. I've been to Vietnam multiple times, and spent a lot of time riding on the back of a scooter with my camera in hand. This was shot as we were passing a number of farms while exploring the area. Vietnam is a truly beautiful place!
