A little about me to give you an in-sight on who I am and what I do. I am an Australian that started my photography career as a Professional Underwater Photographer/ Videographer on Australia's Great Barrier Reef way back in 1997 when I qualified as a PADI Instructor. This line of work eventually took me overseas to places such as Belize and the British Virgin Islands. In 2002 I became a U.S. legal Alien, (U.S Citizen 2008) and moved to the great state of Texas. My focus shifted from photography to Emergency medicine to get a job to help pay the bills. After completing my schooling to become a Paramedic in 2004 I started working 911 in Houston and teaching EMS at a local college. Until the war in Iraq beckoned me to do my part on the war on terror in 2005. It was during my deployment as a contractor that my focus as an Underwater photographer began to shift in a profound way to U.S Military subjects, in particular the aviation assets. Since there was no ocean around for a thousand miles worth diving in I figured I would keep my photography skill sharp taking pictures of our mighty U.S military. From 2005-2010 I took tens of thousands of images throughout Iraq. A lot of these images now grace the hallways of U.S. military headquarter buildings, personal offices and on countless personal websites throughout the world. It has been a privilege to have served besides these fine young men and women of our U.S Military and to take images of them and create a record of history of their involvement in Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) and Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF).
These days I shoot with one of Canon's top of the line professional SLR and L- Series lenses and other professional accessories. I am able to provide advanced lighted portraits inside or outdoors, creating images that few can match.
If you have any questions about these purchasing these images, or information on licensing please contact me and I will do my best to assist you.
