My work as a Commercial Professional Photographer
This website has been created to display my work as a Commercial Professional Photographer, in the time prior to the arrival of digital imaging.
My full bio is also available here
My time in the industry allowed me to travel, work in many photographic disciplines, and gain a great deal of experience in the Craft of Photography.
All before digital arrived.
I was fortunate to work alongside (and in competition with) mobs of talented photographers, as well as many writers, designers, printers and publishers.
Since retiring from full time photography, I have begun recently to consider how to digitise my film files.
I’ve created spread sheets in Excel to catalogue what I have, and I’m looking forward to taking into the collection my work from Melbourne in the 80’s.
Work done for The Age and Sunday Press will still (I hope) be in their files.
After much time and patient work I have arrived at a digitising system: it allows me to get the film into digital form conveniently and at an acceptable level of quality, given the volume of work.
This site will grow, but not quickly.
