Surf & Ocean Photographer, located on Sydneys Northern Beaches, NSW Australia.
Since picking up my first DSLR camera in 2018, I have been learning and practicing the craft of photography. 
As a surfer, I'm drawn to creating imagery of surf, surfing, ocean and coastal subjects from either the land or ocean. I also have a fondness for automotive photography.
I occasionally film and produce short surfing movies and edits and  I am part of the team that films for The Surfboard Guide.
I have also been assembling a body of work featuring fine art imagery of Freshwater Beach, in a different style to that of the abundant blue sky, blue ocean images.
Over the last few years my imagery has been used by surf brands, magazines and media companies.
In 2019 I spent the week capturing the WSL QS6000 Vissla Sydney Surf Pro, as part of the Coveredhub media team. 
I have also been featured on Pacific Longboarder Magazine Website for a short surfing film of Freshwater  
Select prints are available to buy, on the print store, and you can also hire me to create content for your brand, or capture your surfing session as high quality still images or as a movie.
The following brand, magazines and organisations have used my imagery.
Vissla (Surf Brand) global account and Brazil's account
