Before I begin, I’d like to say a massive thanks to my friend Tallara for allowing me to showcase her story. I am totally thrilled to bits that she was so happy with the pictures that we made on this summers day. Thank you Tallara
Story telling and photojournalistic portrait is part of my photography that I truly love. This is not a new story, or anything that is unusual to us, but its a story that we all love and think about.
The place we all dream of, is a place where our minds can release, gather and embrace. As all of our worries, solutions and wishes are lifted and enlightened.
The warm sun kissed afternoon with just the softest breeze feathering her skin brings her alive and opens her eyes wide.
Alone a girl of nature walks with her thoughts only to share with the earth. She knows who she is and makes her stand with confidence. Nothing will bring her down when she is here!
As the hot sand on her feet radiates and brings her to earth, here she can resolve and with resolve she can grow.
The ocean brings her cleansing, as each wave rythmically swells back and forth its washes over her. It is cool and fresh and wakes her mind and invigorates her body. Its power is un-fathomable and translates it message across the globe to her.
As the sun settles into the horizon and explodes its rays of power over her a girl of nature becomes strong.
Taken from the first creative session in my new Adelaide CBD space on Grote street.
So, Ive just moved into a new Studio in the CBD as part of the renowned Adelaide Art collective, Central Studios. So to help me give it a work out. Im aiming to make some new images towards an exhibition project Im working on at the moment. LUCID PORTRAIT
Im building a body of work towards this project for an exhibition within the year. As yet I don’t have a venue for the exhibition, but I do have a few venues in mind Im thinking about for this. With that said, I am always open for suggestions.
The pictures are art based images, and so far I have made the images as clothed and using natural materials. I am now looking to work the series into nudes, I feel the simplicity of the human form will add heaps to the images. Im a believer in making your work different, so my style is very different to match.
The series promotes expression and has a very spiritual feel from another world, passing through a dream state.
I’ll be shooting the next images for the series in my studio space on Grote street (next to Central Market)
With photoshop so well used by most people these days, I just love switching off to it all and creating art in the old fashion way of doing crazy wild things while the camera is in my hands… Some things you can’t do after the picture is taken… and its nowhere near as fun! All the images in the series are made with only one exposure.
Please enjoy this set from the series. Prints will be available to purchase, and commissions accepted, please get in touch for details
Its nearly time for Adelaide summer to sweep you away. So many stories to be part of and so many people to share them with. Don’t let your memories slip away.
I want to help you catch those memories to keep forever and pass down. I’ll work with you to naturally capture all of those amazing stories in an organic, personal and creative way. Your stories are special and deserve to be treated in a special way and Im dedicated to that.

Adelaide… I will make personal, creative photography for you.
