My father took many great photos before I was born, mysterious, grainy, evocative photos of lands and a time far away and long ago. He bought me a camera when I was young and I’ve been keen on photography ever since.
In the beginning I was inspired by street photographers such as the famous Cartier-Bresson and others like Joel Meyerowitz. Candid, spontaneous photos of people caught in a moment of time.
While my style has continued to evolve and grow, spontaneous and candid photography continues to inform my work. Strong influencers these days are Helmut Newton, Alex Prager and in Australia Peter Coulson, each with a unique voice that enriches my world.
In fact, I've enjoyed photography so much that I went and studied photography full time for two years that's not only made me a better photographer but enriched my understanding and appreciation of the visual world in front of me.
I love taking photos of people. I aim to take fresh, modern images with cool backgrounds in locations and environments that are fun and familiar to you. I enjoy working outdoors using natural light and working indoors using available light and off camera flash.
I create intimate, personal and professional portraits of you at a location that reflects your personality, where you feel most comfortable. This might be your home, city streets or buildings, your workplace, cafes or restaurants that you frequent, or wherever you relax or play sport.
If you’re short on ideas there’ll be tons of great locations near you that I can search out for you or that we can search out together.
If you have a commercial shoot for your brand or business I'm also quite happy to work to your brief and achieve the result you're after.
Pricing generally depends on the type of shoot and what you’re trying to achieve. You can get a set of headshots from $180, a fashion or urban portrait shoot for a bit more.
I can arrange hair, makeup, stylist and studio space if required.
My vision is simple. To make interesting and meaningful pictures.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with your ideas and what you’re hoping to achieve, I’d love to hear from you.

“Peter was lovely to work with. He was extremely flexible and generous with his time. The photos he produced are a mixture of corporate and candid, inside and out. He directed us artfully to ensure we got the shots we were after, they're great quality and he delivered them when he said he would. - Lisa
Peter is professional with his work from start too finish. The consult before the shoot was great as we where both on the same page with what I wanted out of the shoot. The actual day of the shoot was great as well, I felt very comfortable and trusted in Peter’s work so I could just be myself and have fun with it. Thank you so much for your professionalism and passion in photography Peter. ” – Julie
