He runs a successful boutique wedding and commercial photography business [27Creative] based in Perth, Western Australia – and feeds his personal love of art, creativity and visual narrative through his fine-art portraiture.

A typical week could see him shooting a beautiful bride on location one day, and in theatre scrubs covering transplant surgery the next.
