Something about myself…I started seriously taking photos recently enough, 2006 I suppose. I enjoy photography as an act unto itself – it creates a sharper focus, a broader awareness of the world around.
Making a photograph consists of many elements, only one of which is releasing the shutter. For me, any subject matter will do. It is what I think or feel that I can turn it to that concerns me – will it move, inspire, reveal, tickle, or in other words create an effect in the one looking at the picture.
Today there are images galore and with so many around, it creates that extra pressure to come up with something truly unique. I believe that I occassionally manage to do that.
I grew up in Perth, Western Australia; currently live in Syndey, New South Wales.
