MY STORY

HUSBAND, FATHER, PHOTOGRAPHER

To know me, you need to know my wife, Kesh. The night we met, she was wearing Adidas three stripe track pants and Dunlop Volleys. I had seen Kesh before but never like this. She was beautiful, without trying. We spoke briefly and for the first time in my life, I asked for a girl’s phone number. I spent the next four weeks driving up and down the freeway to be with her. And when I wasn’t with Kesh, her voice whispered to me down the telephone and into the beginning of new days. Four weeks after we met, Kesh flew away to the far reaches of Canada.

Kesh would be on the other side of the world for twelve months and almost immediately, I knew I was going to marry her. Life without her didn’t feel like it should. Two months after Kesh sailed back into the country, we were engaged. One morning, before sunrise, we walked across the sand and stood in front of the ocean with Kesh’s Nan and Pa’s home as our backdrop. I asked the most important question of my life, she said yes and we celebrated with eggs benedict and hot chocolate.

Two months after that, we were married. In May 2012, our lives changed forever. Kesh gave birth to our baby boy, Roo. In 2015, our baby boy Zion joined the family.

I regularly shoot weddings all over the world but have recently settled with my family in the Southern Highlands where I love to shoot at: Kangaroo Valley Bush Retreat, Bendooley Estate, Melross Farm, Somerley House, Jaspers Berry, Montrose Berry Farm, Mali Brae Farm and many other beautiful properties in the region.

MY PHILOSOPHY

I’ve always considered myself an observer of life and people, not an orchestrator of them. With this in mind, my photography is designed to help you feel comfortable in what can often be an uncomfortable situation by simply encouraging natural movement and engagement.

My focus is on the emotion of the day, rather than the grandeur of it. While the details play a role, it’s the feelings and relationships that I’m really there for.
