I'm an editorial, commercial & documentary photographer based out of the Gold Coast but am always on the road, travelling near and far, freelancing to national and international clients and publications.
I recently became the first artist in Australia to be awarded funding by VSCO's Artist Initiative to undertake my latest documentary project, In This Skin. In 2015 I spent four months travelling around the world photographing for this special project - check out the stories and travel snaps over here on my VSCO Grid & Journal.
