29 April 2016
I am a 29 year old photography enthusiast and professional videographer. I have lived in Sydney my entire life and it would be an understatement to say, I love this city.
For many years I funnelled my creative energy into music and was fortunate enough to play many of Sydney’s most iconic live venues and see much of New South Wales whilst on tour. Unfortunately, I didn’t even know back then how to take a photo with my phone, let alone a camera.
That changed for me when my career started to shift into videography and I taught myself how to use a DSLR, which was at that time a Canon 70D.
In an effort to become a better videographer, I started to learn time-lapse photography on the 70D, under the tutelage of Belgian born Motion Picture maker Matthew Vandeputte (@matjoez).
My photography really only started last year, when whilst time-lapsing a storm at Bradley’s Head, I shot a bride and groom attempting to have their wedding photos taken during epic weather. The photo (included below) went a bit mad on the internet and encouraged me to take my photography somewhat seriously.
Since then I have spent most of my nights (and a fair few of my mornings) in and around the Sydney foreshore, attempting to shoot every sunrise/sunset I can. Now I shoot on a 5Diii and if you see me around the harbour, feel free to say “hi”, I am usually the one trying to stick his camera in the ocean.
