Growing up I always wanted to be creative. At the age of 6 I made the announcement while drawing at the dinner table, "I'll be an artist one-day". I was eating pasta in butter. Thankfully my palette has evolved since then. Although to be fair, my profession of choice had improved since age 2 when I proclaimed "I want a baby crocodile when I grow up". Okay, so maybe I didn't always want to be a creative. But I was creative with my job dreams.
It wasn't until I was in year 9 art class that we got to shoot our first roll of black and white film and develop it in the dark room. A family friend leant me his camera, a Minolta SLR. It was the most incredible experience. I was hooked.
Creating powerful imagery
One of my biggest aims with my photography is to challenge preconceived ideas of what is a beautiful landscape. Every part of this world is beautiful. Every drop of rain. Every cloud. The dark days and cold mornings. I want to remind everyone that while we are stuck in society with our blinkers on - out there the world still continues.
