PHOTOGRAPHY and me
Stills photography has always been my passion. I first took up photography around the age of twelve, inspired by my father who at the time was running a local newspaper. Some XX years later, I still get the same buzz from the magic of photography...

Having lived in Asia since 2002 I've found increasing opportunity to explore the world of photography, particularly through my involvement as filmmaker for the China Exploration & Research Society... though frustratingly I often find myself looking through the viewfinder of my video camera wishing I could take photos instead... But of course the reverse would also be true!

I guess its a happy dilemma to have...

More recently I have added photography to the list of services I offer clients. I only do it where it seems the right fit - i.e. when my joint skills lend themselves to the job - e.g. for my CSIRO I was able to both shoot video and stills of the construction of their new research vessel the RV Investigator. The job often required changes to the schedule at short notice, and thus by working on my own I was able to be more flexible and incur less expense for my client.

Thus when combining photography and video I can save clients money, as well as ensure that the quality of the service is maintined across both disciplines :o)

I've also shot stills and video for Sembawang Shipyards and Acergy/Subsea7 (below)
I plan to get a selected portfolio online in the coming months, but in the meantime, if you would like more samples of my work, please contact me directly and I'd be happy to oblige.

In the meantime, heres links to some stills I have taken for CSIRO:

"Ship Buidling That Looks Like Art"

"What's in a Name?"

"Investigator is Looking Fantastic"

"The Hull Moves Towards Completion"
