noosa wedding portrait and event photography
i would love to photograph your special noosa moments….
I am a wedding and portrait photographer because I love photographing people. My images celebrate the love shared within families. These images are a celebration of my continuing connections over many years with couples, parents, children and their pets. As a documentary photographer, I am passionate about capturing your spontaneous candid images naturally, with as little intrusion as possible. Noosa’s many beach, river, and park locations provide a beautiful backdrop for weddings and the unique and loving bond between children and their families.

I started work as a photographer at the age of 16 in 1972, processing and editing black and white film in the darkrooms of the Courier Mail Brisbane. While there I was lucky enough to be invited to accompany the Courier Mail’s commercial and advertising photographer Carol Garlick on Aerial, Restaurants and Industrial photography assignments. This was a great place to start out and gain valuable experience from the ground up. Once I finished my Photography Certificate at the Queensland College of Art, I branched out into the world of colour processing and tried several positions at various colour laboratories around Brisbane.
self employment 1984
In 1984 I ventured out on my own as a professional. My first commercial assignment was a smash repair shop around the corner, a full colour brochure. Then came the introduction of the computers to business’s and every office manager wanted to be photographed with the new office computer. My experience grew and I expanded my business and slowly gained clients in the advertising field nationally and internationally.
