    I am a portrait and street photographer hailing from the picturesque landscapes . My journey in the world of photography began in 2015, and since then, I have honed my skills in capturing the essence of individuals, families, and the captivating beauty of landscapes. My lens is a storyteller, weaving narratives through each image I create.

    My passion lies in immortalizing the genuine emotions that grace the faces of my subjects. A photograph, to me, is more than just a frozen moment in time; it's an intricate tapestry of feelings and memories.
    Each glance at my work is intended to transport viewers to the exact moment the shutter clicked, forming an unbreakable connection to the past.

    As anyone who chases milkyway photos will tell you, they take some careful planning and often a lack of sleep. Charlies Hut is in the Scenic Rim. It's about a 2hr drive from home, and with the help of Photopills, we could see that the moon would have set with the milkyway still visible at about 4am. So alarms were set for 1.30am, coffee was made and off we went. I use the intervalometer on my Canon 6D mark ii to shoot between 15-20 images of the sky. The lens I used was a Samyang 14mm, set

    May 10 the northern lights hit a G5 storm, a KP index of 9, the highest it will go, and the best storm we've seen in over 20 years. I drove my 10 year old son north to see them, this was a chance of a lifetime. I managed to get several amazing photos. Canon R6M2, RF10-20mm lens at 10mm, 30sec at f4, iso 1000, manual focusing. This was looking more north-west as most of the bright colours could be seen to the south, west and just north of us.
