CEO, Director

An entrepreneur at heart with passion for the creative sector, I’ve been deeply involved with the creative industry for over 17 years. Working with various design agencies and organisations, my specialisation has been across brand and identity work.

Being a Design Director I have been involved with not just graphic design but art directing multiple photoshoots for various businesses small and big. I’ve worked with many talented photographers, marketers and producers on creating briefs, art directing sets and making sure teams can capture what's needed - on the day of the shoot! It's a skill set that helps me work well with our contributors and clients at Truestock.

For 30 years I've had the privilege of blending my love of people with my passion for photography. I've photographed a diverse range of people in numerous countries. From 50 Cent in his NYC offices, to children playing in the dirt lanes of Soweto.

I've photographed a world champion free diver, a WBC, IBF, & WBA title holding boxer, burlesque stars, boy bands, rappers, actors, models, sports people, business leaders, business owners, trades people, news readers, TV dramas, reality TV contestants & an SAS soldier turned mercenary.

I've worked on location in jungles & lakes in Thailand, and biker bars in Southampton; on beaches in Spain, Australia, the Maldives & Nicaragua; in studios, hotels and offices in New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, London, Zurich, Auckland, Sydney and Melbourne.

Over the last seven years I've regularly shot alongside directors and DOP's on film and television sets to capture marketing campaigns, publicity images, and unit stills for broadcasters, television productions, and advertising clients. I'm now settled in Melbourne with my wife Georgina and our son Oscar.
