Worked on farms for 8 years,
before working as a Dairy Case & Freezer Manager at the Mount Barker
Co-op Ltd for 6.5 years.
From the age of 12 I had an
interest in Photography. Videographer came a little later and I tended to
enjoy shooting scenery.
I was a bricklayer from 1994

MS Word, Excel and Access at Albany TAFE.
I have filmed and put to DVD
49 weddings and at least

shires and towns to explore and digitally capture all I find interesting

year 2013 seems to be a very promising year.
What a ride it's been so far
and it's not going to stop.
My life's not all about
work, it's all about evolving, this type of work is more like fun and I
get plenty of time to relax too.
