A BIT ABOUT ME
Becoming a Unit Still Photographer in 2014 after spending more than 30 years working in the Camera Department satisfied a long-held desire to once again make the single image my primary focus.
This background places me in a unique position being the only Production Still Photographer within Australia to have had that experience.
Throughout those years invaluable working relationships have been created from working within that nucleus for such an extended period.
Not only with camera, but with those other departments that can make or break a Stills Photographer on set, Grips, Electrics, AD's
Art Department and of course the Costume, Hair and Make-up teams.
Often times the Unit Still Photographer depends on the help of other departments to achieve a particular shot.
Thanks to the friendships formed over my years on set I know I can rely on that assistance from the crew without hesitation.
My aim as a Production Stills Photographer is to tell the story of the scene through a single image. Achieving the results with as little disturbance as possible to the actors, crew or the flow of the day's work.
My photography has been purchased by buyers throughout Australia and the U.S.
My work has hung in Panavision Australasia and their head office in Los Angeles.
Presently I am preparing volume one of a two-volume set 'Observations' based on my behind the scenes images shot over the last thirty years on set.
A sample of images contained in the books are available to view on this site, click on the link below
In "The Shadow Catchers" Author Martha Ansara's book celebrating the history of the Australian Cinematographers Society and Cinematography in Australia the number of my images included was second only to that of The Australian Film and Sound Archive.
