From the moment I saw their work, three photographers immediately changed my perceptions of photography. Henri Cartier-Bresson, Don McCullin and James Nachtwey are masters of bringing composition and story-telling to a moment which cannot be repeated. Having had no formal training in photography, it's these photographers who have influenced the direction my photography has taken over recent years.
Growing up in Sydney, there was certainly no shortage of great people and places to capture, but it was on a long backpacking journey through South America on my way to London that made me realise my photography could be more than just a hobby. Whilst I've long graduated from my humble point & shoot camera, I'm still looking through my lens with the same sense of adventure to bring about the uniqueness to my photography that sets me apart from others.
Weddings provide a particular photographic interest for me. Like stepping back in time to the era of the great street photographers of the late 1940's and 50's, weddings allow me to photograph similar scenes of social interaction without the natural hesitation from those I'm photographing.
This is wedding photojournalism with a cinematic twist. It's also without rehearsal and without intrusion but close enough to always be a part of any discussion.
Thanks and please don't hesitate to contact me if you would like to discuss things further.
