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

My photography often reflects my interest in the mundane and everyday.

I don't see people as photo opportunities per se, rather I see them as opportunities for me (and sometimes them) to observe, connect and learn from a shared interaction.

I use a good degree of technical skill and knowledge in my job, but I'm quite non-technical when it comes to photography and cameras.

I use intuition when taking photos, and would rather talk about the evolution of my process,  the interactions I have with people and the social issues in their environment  - rather than do technical talk. 

In other words: it's all about the story.

I'm currently working on two photo projects – one relating to water rights in rural India; the other an ongoing work which asks people from around the world the same five questions to reveal a commonality about hope, aspirations and fears irrespective of race or culture.
