I grew up pretty much alone, on a horse, in the bush...with a tendency to dream, and to become lost for hours in such things as a flower, or the wind on my face. Photography was a lure for many years, but has only been an integral part of my life since 2007 merging with a deep love of the natural world. There is, at the bottom of it all, a deep reverence for land and life. The wild identity of the land speaks to those who venture into its embrace. To know it in all its seasons, its moods and it’s animals, to communicate a sense of it’s wild spirit and mystery – this motivates my photography. In the magic hours around dawn and dusk, the play of light and colour over water, rock and landscape reveals beauty often hidden , transforms the mundane into the sacred, creating experiences and images vibrant with the hues and subtleties of the mystery unfolding. Landscape photography is an expression of the unique relationship of the photographer with the land. My photography is an attempt to communicate intimate moments in that relationship, which stir the emotions and touch the spirit.
