I make pictures as a way of navigating life. The colours, the lines, and the light intermingle, to form a single pattern different every time, no matter what. Just before I take a picture, I feel this strong energy force - it takes over. At this moment, I feel real. I feel honest... and I feel alive. CLR
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I recently did a campaign for the CommBank, photographing and interviewing everyday people doing extraordinary things. What I loved about this job was the inspiration I gained from meeting, interviewing and photographing such amazing people within their communities. We all have a story to tell, finding these people and taking their portrait is a real buzz!
