I am a South Australian photographer whose main interests are photographing abandoned rural buildings before they disappear forever, architectural abstracts, and candid people shots occasionally. Basically, I photograph what appeals to me and this can change according to the weather, time of year ... and the mood I'm in. One of the great things about living in SA is the ability to get away from suburbia in less than an hour and to feel that you might just be the last person on Earth.
I joined the Adelaide Camera Club in 2006 and, after a few years and some success in club and state competitions, I felt confident enough to start spreading my wings and began entering international exhibitions. I was fortunate to gain enough acceptances and awards at the international level to apply for, and be awarded, the honours of Master Australian Photographic Society (MAPS) in 2015 and Expert Federation of International Photographic Art (EFIAP) in 2016. Since then, my interest in competing has waned and I have a much more relaxed approach to my photography, preferring to seek out and record abandoned buildings in rural areas before they disappear forever.
Member of Adelaide Camera Club (2006), Eastern Suburbs Camera Club (2014), Australian Photographic Society and the Photographic Society of America.
I'm an Olympus fan and bought an Olympus OM-D EM5 Mark 2 in 2017, love it, but I still keep my old (and back-breakingly heavy) Olympus E-5 just in case ... or perhaps for sentimental reasons..
Most used software is Photoshop CC and Lightroom Classic. Favourite filters are the Nik collection, Topaz, and ON! as well as Aaron Dowling's indispensable ADP Pro V3 panel for Photoshop. I used Adobe Portfolio to create this site.
