“The question is not what you look at, but what you see.”

For the love of film.

I’m a photographer based in Newcastle, Australia. Although I love the bright lights of big cities, the relaxed lifestyle and starry nights of regional NSW just has too great a hold of me.

Whilst the nature of some shoots demand the use of digital cameras, for my personal work I prefer to shoot with vintage film cameras, more often than not using classic black and white film. And I mostly photograph people.

I love the look of photos taken on film, but I’m equally attracted to the process. The delayed gratification of developing the film and holding the negatives up to the light for the first time to see what I’ve captured is a feeling that never gets old. The magic of seeing a photo print gradually appear in the developing tray under the glow of the red darkroom lights beats an afternoon spent in front of the computer any day.

If you’d like to collaborate, or if you have any questions feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you!
