I am an amateur photographer and I live in Newcastle, Australia.
My main interest is nature and wildlife photography.
I have been competing in international competitions since 2008 and have received more than 8000 acceptances and more than 600 awards. Through these competitions I have gained the following photographic distinctions:
EFIAP (Excellence award, International Federation of Photographic Arts)
GMPSA/S (Grand Masters Silver award, Photographic Society of America)
GMAPS (Grand Masters award, Australian Photographic Society)
APSEM (Australian Photographic Society Exhibitors Medal)
In 2015 I was awarded the Nature Medallion by the Australian Photographic Society for my contribution to nature photography.
I regularly judge competitions at club, national and international levels.
I frequently present workshops for photography clubs on photographic techniques and image processing. If you are interested in having me judge or present a workshop at your photography club you may email me from the Contact page .
I am a life member of the Lake Macquarie Camera Club (formerly the Belmont 16s Photography Club).
I am the Australian Membership Director for the Photographic Society of America (PSA) and I am happy to assist you with any PSA related matters. I have served terms as the PSA International Relationships Vice President and the PSA Membership Vice President. I was awarded the APSA honour in 2019.
