Your hometown?

Currently I’m splitting my time between Mount Coolum, QLD and Aix en Provence, France.

Day Job?

Travel + Underwater Photographer

Your weapons of choice (camera and lenses)?

Nikon D800 paired with a Nikon 14-24mm and Aquatech Water Housing for underwater work or a Nikon 28-300 + 50mm lens for travel images.

When did you first realise photography was your calling?

I was in Marrakech working as a writer for Lonely Planet when I couldn’t put my camera down and got totally hooked on the colours and atmosphere a camera can capture.

How would you describe your approach?

I prefer to see the world from the water so try to incorporate the ocean, lakes or fountains into my work whenever possible.

What’s the secret to a ‘banging’ image?

Capturing a scene with a unique perspective that draws the viewer into that moment.

Any exciting projects you’ve been working on recently?

I’ve been working on my project ‘The World from The Water’ for the past year with various tourism boards around the world to capture coastal villages from the sea.

Apart from your camera gear, what’s the one piece of essential kit you’d always carry in the great outdoors?

Gum boots, whenever I arrive somewhere new, especially in winter, I buy a cheap pair so I can wander through the creeks, lakes etc without limiting my images to the shoreline.

Quote that you live by?

Just Go.
