“Because I want the world to see my life through my eyes.”

Hi there, photography has only been a recent discovery for me, buying my first DSLR 2 years ago, a Nikon D60. I have a background in music performance that spans 15 years and 2 major Australian cities, I now call Sydney home, living and playing here for 7 years now.

So after a long think about what I want out of my life, I have figured that I want a career change, I want to pursue photography, I want to make it everything that expresses me as not only an artist but a person who has something to say, something to show, a perspective to display that wasn’t thought of before.

So with that in mind I upgraded to a D300s, I have been shooting for 5 months now, and loving everything about it. I have more motivation, drive and passion for photography in the last months than I ever had for my music in the last 15 years. I am raw and untrained, learning fast and laughing at my mistakes, loving the process and the challenges I am being thrown along the way – what have I gotten myself into?!

Doing something right for no one else but yourself takes courage and faith.

Wish me luck!
