Every opportunity to learn is like a creative 'safari', a 'journey' of the heart and mind, whether you travel far or never leave the studio. Good mentoring is the wind beneath your photographic wings.

So, whether you are an absolute beginner, an experienced amateur or a serious student - take your skills to the next level.

As a professional photographer I am always on a creative 'safari', in my studio, in my twin homes of Melbourne and Johanna, and wherever I travel. As long as my camera is with me I am on safari. Mentoring and teaching people who love their photography is also an important part of this journey for me, that travels along side of my commercial, fine art and personal work.
