I have 15+ years newspaper and magazines experience with Fairfax newspapers, and have worked for international agencies, and magazines, covering assignments worldwide on a range of topics - such as the saving of a rainforest in remote Papua New Guinea, to orphanages in East Timor and The Australian Flying Doctors. My photography skills cover all areas; from corporate portraiture, studio, reportage, still life, and architectural. I am adept at interpreting a brief.
Recently my personal photography has focused on domestic spaces and childbirth. My long term picture essay is called "Free Range Children", and I have a book due out in 2017. Awards include an Australian Walkley award and a World Press Photo award.

One of the poorest countries in Asia, East Timor (Timor-Leste) is lacking in basic infrastructure and access to water after a decades long struggle for independence against Indonesia. 50 - 60% of the children (and their mothers) are malnourished due to a diet consisting of mainly rice and carbohydrates. Women in Timor Leste have endured years of violent opression, abuse of human rights, displacement and sexual violence.
