I was born in Sydney, Australia in 1983, in the year of the pig. I got my first camera when I was 8. That camera was all-plastic and “focus-free.” It was really great.
Decades later, I’ve been published in Esquire, Food & Wine, Forbes, Front Desk, Michigan Avenue magazines and several books, and I have photographed musicians and mixologists, archbishops and farmers, but my favorite subject is photographing people in love.
After all this time, I’ve come to realize something — the best photographs reveal people’s true selves; and so, the best photographer isn’t the one with the best camera, or the most perfect lighting setup, although those things are important too — the best photographer is the one that can get his or her subject to express themselves naturally.
So that is what I try to do.
