DARE TO KNOW MORE?
Born and raised in Sydney Australia, I'm a true blue Aussie at heart but have been living in London since 2007 for the incredible career and life opportunities which it brings. With my time and passion for the big city of London I have earned my naturalisation status and now a dual citizen of both countries.
After 3 and a half years at M&CSAATCHI in Sydney and now 7 and a half years at AKQA in London, I have decided to make the most of the variety and amount of work in London and hit the freelancing Art Directing savanna while giving any spare time to my wildlife photography and guided photographic tuition.
I have always had a passion for the wild world and imagery - this came together in an explosive combination when I started to travel and brought my first SLR in 2008. It was a whole new world and I soon become addicted, travelling to the far reaches of the Arctic circle at -38 to swim with wild Orcas to the scorching heat of Indian jungles looking for Bengal tigers.
Recent successes include being featured on GoPro's feed for my Lynx footage, articles about my bear photographs in the UK press, being a winner of the Eden Shorts competition, which includes my timelapse video being featured on UKTV with an interview with Nigel Marven to be aired this year - and finalist in Wildlife Photographer of the Year 6 times over the last 4 years (not a winner yet but I'm working on it!)
Current projects include Project: TreeBear, where I am going to get the worlds first aerial picture of a Brown Bear cub 30 meters up a tree with spur climbing, armoured camera boxes and lots of honey. And Project: Jaguar, where I have built the worlds first fully remote wireless camera trap system that can function up to 6 weeks unmanned with multiple wireless flash units at ranges of over 100 meters apart to photograph the elusive jaguars inside an ancient Mayan caves. Little is known about the caves, or what the jaguars do there, I am one of only people to have ever been to the caves which were only discovered in 2011. The question is, what do jaguars do in the caves when no man is around? Stay tuned...
