I'm a Melbourne based photographer, working in corporate communications, who is in interested in people, culture, social documentary, photojournalism and street photography. 

My mother recently asked me why I take so many photos of everything. I explained to her that I felt compelled to capture emotions, events, interactions and change.

To give you an example: I once had a city office overlooking an old art deco building across the road. The building was demolished to make way for a city high rise apartment complex. For months, I took photos every morning from the same spot to document the demolition of the old building, and the development of the new building. 

I'm not a professional photographer, and I am not someone who spends endless hours talking about camera technology. I prefer to spend my time thinking about the evolution of my process; the social issues and conversations raised through photography; and the representation of people in photographs.

None of this is meant to sound pretentious - I guess I just like to photograph everyday life; look at and talk about photography; and consider how things look in photos.
