I’m a visual storyteller who’s madly in love with helping creatives, makers, and small business owners put good things out into the world. I do this through commercial photography and video that communicates the unique message behind my clients’ businesses and brands.
I’m passionate, purposeful and I adore working with good people. People who value deep connections, slow living, sustainable choices, and commitment to something greater than themselves. Helping these people document their creative products, services and lifestyles, in a way that’s truly authentic and helps them build their tribes, is my favourite thing. (A close second would be teaching others to do the same – I love helping other photographers to more creatively capture their vision!)
MY APPROACH TO PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEO INCLUDES A FOCUS ON DEVELOPING A MEANINGFUL BOND WITH EACH CLIENT, SO THAT I CAN UNDERSTAND WHO THEY ARE, WHAT THEY DO AND WHAT IT MEANS TO THEM. EVERYONE HAS A STORY TO SHARE, AND I CONSIDER IT A PRIVILEGE TO BE PART OF THAT PROCESS.
My own story is a colourful one. My adventurous childhood, with time spent living on a commercial fishing boat and later in a relaxed tropical town, instilled in me a love of freedom and rich, creative life experiences. I developed an interest in photography as a teenager, and immediately was smitten by the process of seeking out the beauty in the world and showcasing it to others through my art. After earning my degree in photography, working for a year in Sydney as a freelance assistant to commercial photographers, and later joining (then, eventually, purchasing) a photography studio in Townsville, I made the decision to write my next chapter.
I’m now designing my life around everything I love: my supportive partner and our daughter Ocean, my two dogs and eight chickens, my ever-growing veggie garden, and my passion for food, yoga, beekeeping and celebrating life (and, of course, photographing and videoing the hell out of all of it!). In early 2016, I moved to a semi-rural area on the outskirts of Sydney to be closer to farmers and foodies, so that I can better serve them through my photography and film.
