Lover of art, travel and capturing digital stills. 

I have always been a creative; whether it be collecting, making or capturing things.  I have always had a camera, from the standard home film camera to the first kodak digital camera.  Trained as a painter, my photography always took second gear as I worked my way through my bachelor of visual arts completing my 4 year Honours in 2010.  After establishing my name in Adelaide as a portrait painter my career took a turn when working at one of Adelaide's fine dining restaurants when I made a deal with the head chef.  I swapped a painted portrait of his great grandparents that got sent off to Scotland for a suitcase full of his nikon gear.

Long story short and a few nikon cameras later I am working full time as a 'creative'.  I believe both my mediums influence each other whether it be through colour, composition, eye for detail or my people skills.  With my bubbly, easy going personality I love shooting documentary style, telling a story through snapshots whether its an event, wedding, food & cocktail or fashion.


My love for the food industry started whilst working in Adelaide's top fine dining restaurants.  My visual art background takes over with food & cocktail photography documenting the nature of wining & dining.  I have collaborated with local hospitality establishments, helping to market & promote their venues through food, cocktail, event & interior photography.



I have experience in social events, media launches, birthdays, engagement, concert, product launches & corporate photography. Get in touch to discuss documenting your next event.   

My recent projects include photographer for Morphettville racecourse during their Spring season and the Adelaide Fashion Festival for 2015/16 capturing all events, socials and runways.

My event work has been featured in local publications including Broadsheet Media, Clique mag, Adelaide Review, Glam Adelaide and the Advertiser.
