I am a freelance travel photographer who has had the privilege of travelling the world over the past 35 years amassing a substantial and I hope, compelling collection of images of people and places in more than 90 countries and on all seven continents, building a career based on my twin passions for travel and photography. The images are published worldwide in books, magazines, newspapers, brochures, calendars, posters, cards and websites. They have been reproduced from the size of a stamp (literally) to the size of a tarpaulin protecting the contents of a 53-foot truck trailer. I’ve published thirteen books including five editions of the best-selling Lonely Planet’s Guide to Travel Photography and the large format pictorials Australia: 42 great landscape experiences, Nepal and India: essential encounters.
I’ve won a few awards over the years but am most proud of gaining a Master of Photography and one gold bar from the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) and being judged Australia’s top travel photographer by leading commercial clients and industry experts in the 2007 Capture Magazine Australia’s Top Photographers Awards. In 2014 I was thrilled to be one of five photographers selected for the first series of National Geographic Channel’s television documentary Tales by Light, which you can now watch on Netflix documentaries. I’m especially honoured to represent Canon Australia as a Canon Master Photographer, the Australian Himalayan Foundation as an Ambassador and World Nomads as their Travel Photography Scholarship Mentor.
