I am a passionate photographer, based in the heart of Melbourne.
I studied photography throughout high school, yet it was not until my final year that I realised that this is what I wanted to do with my life. I started a Bachelor of Visual Arts at La Trobe Bendigo, it was here I really discovered where my future lay.
Whilst I love the conceptual and artistic side of photography, what I really love is the adrenalin and intensity of sports photojournalism, and this is where life will hopefully lead me in the near future.I decided that to pursue this avenue it would be beneficial to move back to Melbourne and transfer to Photography Studies College, I am currently taking a break from studies but intend to return in the near future.
I am very involved in the world of dog showing, most weekends you will find me at a dog show as an exhibitor somewhere in the state of Victoria, occasionally I travel interstate to attend shows. It soon became clear that many wanted photos of there latest wins, or that new litter of puppies and this is where Champion Shots was born.
I hope you enjoy your visit to my site and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via the contact us page.
