My love of photography started as a young child as my grandfather was an amateur photographer in England during the 50s and 60s. He has had a large impact on my life and has nurtured my love of photography since I developed an interest at age 10. I started out as a band and event photographer at a Newcastle Metal club before doing my Certificate 4 in Photoimaging at Ultimo TAFE in Sydney. This was where I developed a love of art and street photography and is the pivotal point in my professional photographic journey that turned me from live events to the streets. This year I began my Diploma in Photoimaging at Hunter Street TAFE in Newcastle and my love for street photography has continued to develop and grow.
