A Short Bio
My interests and career span many creative disciplines: as a photographer & film maker, an advertising, documentary and music video director, radio broadcaster, writer and publisher. Beginning my career in the feature film industry in London after completing a degree course in film and photography at the legendary Polytechnic of Central London, my range of interests is diverse and has achieved its own level of renown. Having moved quickly from production to direction I have been fortunate to have amassed a portfolio that includes numerous short films and documentaries and pro-bono work for charities such as the Cancer Council, Reconciliation Australia, the United Nations and Medecins Sans Frontiers as well as work for mainstream advertising agencies and clients from around the globe. I’ve won awards at D&AD, One Show, Clio, Cannes, the New York Festivals and across Australia in film and photography categories and have published a retrospective of my life in photography titled “Caught Between Shadows & Light”. I’ve held two one man exhibitions of my photography and as a member of the Ludlites, a group of art photographers practicing ‘plastic camera’ photography, exhibit regularly in both Sydney and Melbourne. I continue to work extensively in the world of fashion and beauty, creating TVC campaigns for a great many of the major cosmetic brands both at home, in Europe, Asia and the U.S. Despite the pigeon-hole of “beauty director” I’m rarely short of requests to bring a sense of beauty to corporate brands in the mainstream. I recently directed a multi-media campaign for the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (called, ironically, “the Hot Potato”), creating daily uploads on the road and culminating in a full length narrative documentary. I’m currently developing a cross media campaign directed at Men, an art installation, a major photographic project as well as a new book of photography. Image creation is my passion. My quest for challenging creative opportunities is on-going and my energy has yet to find its limits.
