From a young age I have always had a passion for the outdoors and love for macro photography. While most kids my age were reading comic books I was reading non-fiction books and journals on the animal kingdom or browsing the amazing photos of National Geographic magazines. I knew it would only ever be time before I bought my first camera and started learning the art of photography for myself.
I finally got my first DSLR in 2014 and, while I haven’t had any formal photography training, I never let that slow me down. Ever since that purchase, I have taken my camera literally almost everywhere, taking every opportunity to practice my art and experiment with techniques and styles basically every day.
As an accountant by trade, photography began as a wonderful way of escaping the seriousness of work and helping me keep a balanced and creative lifestyle. As my career began to change to what I do now, I am fortunate that I can now begin to take my photography to work as well, shooting at various UniSA student events and staff functions.
