about me

I am an amateur photographer from Sydney, Australia. My money making job is as a Physiotherapist, however I love getting out and taking landscape and seascape photos. My photography passion started with photographing my two young boys growing up and has developed over the last two years to a love of getting up super early and capturing the first rays of colour on the horizon.

I currently shoot with an Olympus OMD EM-5 and a variety of lenses. My 12-40mm 2.8 sits on the camera most of the time. I use a Slik tripod (and a compact Sirui one for travelling) and have a Novoflex VR II pan setup.

I occasionally use filters, most notably the screw in Formatt-Hitech Firecrest 16 stop for long exposures. I prefer to blend in photoshop as I feel it gives me more control.
