I've been an underwater photographer since 1979, with my main interest being natural history subjects. Living on the East Coast of Australia, about half way between Sydney & Brisbane, allows me to dive the cooler, temperate areas to the south and also the warmer, tropical waters to the north. I have dived many areas of the Great Barrier Reef and also the outer reef areas. I also dive regularly in the Solitary Islands Marine Park, which is located close to my home.
One of my favourite dive areas is the Solomon Islands, located to the east of New Guinea. The Solomons are known for the diversity of marine life and their clear water. It is possible here to dive in the gin clear water so prized in underwater photography and so it is here that the majority of my diver images are taken. Also here is the opportunity to photograph World War 2 wrecks sunk during the battle of Guadalcanal.
Above water, my photography also leans towards natural history, and I have a special love of frogs and insects, although I also shoot landscapes, sports, people and photojournalism.
I am a Fellow of the Australian Photographic Society and my work has been published in books, magazines, calendars & scientific journals throughout the world. I also compete and judge at International & National level and have been received many awards for my images.
