One of the most valuable things in life is the experience we gain along the way. I'm now in my 5th decade and I've gathered a fair bit of experience in life, and in my chosen profession of photography. I believe it is important to share this learning and experience with others. Mentoring, teaching and promoting creative community is deeply satisfying and rewarding for me. It is at the heart of who I am as an independent creative, and part of what I hold most valuable in life. Alongside of my freelance work I've always mentored student & aspiring photographers. I've previously taught photography and its application across all media at the Australian Academy of Design, and currently mentor emerging professionals through the AIPP mentor programme.
Through my coaching I provide not only technical knowledge, training and support, but mentoring. Mentoring is more personal, more focussed and committed to the long term creative journey and development of each of you. Working at your pace and level, while providing creative and technical challenges in a supportive and enjoyable learning environment. All safaris are a tailored journey designed to especially tackle the aspects of photography and the creative process that challenge or trouble you the most. From one-on-one to small groups (2-4 people) to ensure everyone has time, plenty of personal attention, and can ask all the questions you want.
I hope you'll choose to join me some time soon, on a photo safari along the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, a city safari in Melbourne, or you can book me for nature-focussed photography tour at the Cape Otway Conservation Ecology Centre. Whichever way we come together my commitment is that you leave inspired and empowered to move to your next project, or level of creative endeavour.
At heart, all of us are creative beings and crave to find ways to give expression to who we are how we see the world.
