Personal Information.

I am a photographer specializing in Wilderness and landscape photography based in Melbourne. I have been living in Australia for the past thirteen years spending much of my time photographing throughout Australia and New Zealand. Being brought up in South Africa much of my childhood memories were of wilderness and the landscape. My fascination for wilderness and the landscape has come from my love of Bushwalking and from Photographers such as Ansel Adams and Peter Dombrovskis. Prior to coming to Australia I was living in London studying photography where I gained a BA (Hons) degree in Fine Art. I have exhibited extensively in both Australia and England.

 

Technical Information.

I have been using a  5x4 large format flatbed Linhof Technika V camera with three lenses. The lenses include a Nikkor-SW 90mm, Rodenstock Sirona-N 150mm and Schneider Tele-Arton 250mm. The film used is exclusively Fuji Velvia 100 and 100f, which I feel captures the subtle colour variations in nature.

Also I carry a Pentax 1 degree spot meter and seven 5x4 film holders, five for colour and two for Black and white. On average for a weeks bushwalking I carry fifty colour and twenty five black and white sheets of film.

In recent years have been using a Nikon D800E 36 megapixel digital camera with a Nikkor 16 to 35 mm lens and Nikkor 50mm lens. I edit my photographs using Lightroom 4 and Photoshop CS6.
