Images of your land and your family, telling your story for tomorrow.

There is something breathtaking about our part of South Australia. Something that is hard to describe. It’s that feeling you get when you stand with your toes in the sand and stare out into the seemingly endless ocean totally at peace with the world. Or when you are taking a moment to catch your breath whilst working out in a paddock and contemplate the solitude that comes from the open land stretching out all around you.

My love of my region and the people in it has led me to this incredible career photographing life as I know it. From weddings, to families, to photographing community events, it's an absolute pleasure to be documenting life in our state's glorious South East.
