Katie Holmes editorial


Love this shot of Katie Holmes in her latest editorial shoot although I can't help but see the Katie Holmes behind the mask and her association with Tom Cruise and Scientology.

Aircraft accident response in Papua New Guinea



The cold air rushed through me as I peered over the edge, the clouds that once dominated the landscape had been kind enough to tender their resignation and the sun now took post high overhead. The adrenalin I once felt no longer there. My mind races back to that garage roof. Such a simple act of jumping off holding a tattered bed sheet had sent my adrenalin into overdrive, now it seems, it takes more, lots more for that adrenalin to come out and play.

I lean out, a little further, a bit more. I was now standing horizontal over the edge, my size 9 boots and a strap the only contact I had with the ramp.

About me

I am 32 years old with a gorgeous wife and 15 month old  daughter. I am Australian and love this beautiful country although it could  do with a few more castles.

I have been in the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) for nearly 15 years with the last 7 of those as a professional photographer. I have deployed on both war and peace time operations across the globe and have loved every minute of it.

In an effort to increase my formal qualifications in photography I enrolled in a Bachelor of Photography course with the Canberra Institute of Technology. It was during this course that my interest in fashion photography blossomed. I have made the decision that this is the direction I want my professional photography career to head.

This blog will follow my progress as I attempt to gain a foothold into this challenging and competitive field of photography. It will also look at my current and past work as a photographer with the RAAF.

A note I will make is that all the imagery I will show from my career with the RAAF is copyright Department of Defence. I will talk about this further in another post.

'till next time...

Site Purpose

Hi all,

The purpose of this blog is to document my change from a war photographer to a fashion photographer.

I will talk about my current and past work as an Australian Defence Force photographer and also talk about my inroads into fashion photography.

Here is one of my war photographs;
