My passion with photography started as a teenager with my dad's old Pentax ME Super 35mm film camera. My interest in photography grew rapidly when I brought my first film camera, a Canon EOS 630 and dabbled with Fuji Velvia ISO 50 colour slide film and B&W. In those days to save money I developed my own slide film as well as printed B&W photos in my home darkroom. I was captivated by the developing process and seeing the magic of my photos suddenly appearing in the darkroom chemicals.
As the passion and experience grew so did the need to invest in better quality equipment. In 1995, a colleague and I started a professional wedding and portrait photography business. As a sports fan the natural progression was to then shoot sports teams and event action at sports carnivals, as well as State, National and International Championships.
Some of the events I have covered for event organisers, media and sports photography agencies are:
Adelaide City to Bay Fun Run Australian Rugby 7s Championships 2016 BRW Triathlon series World Duathlon Championships BUPA Tour Down Under cycling challenge UCI Tour Down Under Pro cycling Pacific School Games Adelaide Marathon and Half Marathon UCI World Road Cycling Championships - Geelong
Australian Rally Championships World Police and Fire Games Australian Masters Games Adelaide International Horse Trials National Road Cycling State League Soccer
