I'm a passionate photographer from Melbourne, Australia.

For me photography is a spiritual act, an inner conviction and a desire to abstract essence beyond the material world. I think abstract photography is more than just “technically perfect rendering”, it’s the ability to show emotion and tell a story through composition and lighting.

I generally prefer monochrome conversions as they tend to help me focus on what I consider the essential compositional elements and, therefore, the ultimate message behind the image.
I am continuously inspired by the smallest and simplest of objects, I love playing around with light to create different images and moods and I like how a photograph, unlike the other visual arts, is eternally bound to reality in a more profound way. I am fascinated with the concept of the real, and how people perceive objects and reality.
I love to experiment with these two aspects as the smallest of changes can drastically alter ones perception and evoke particular feelings. I often walk during different times of the day within the same route so that I may appreciate the effects the light has on the textural properties of my immediate environment.
