My first photojournalist assignment was in Cambodia working for the Phnom Penh Post; the country’s first English-language newspaper. Each day I would hail a motodop (motorbike taxi) and head off into the busy, narrow streets or to quiet, muddy outskirts on the whiff of a local story to develop onto film and type into print. I had just completed a Bachelor of Communications in Journalism and Photomedia in Perth, Western Australia and through exchanges to Hong Kong and Shanghai where the opportunities to continue travelling and working satisfied my wanderlust and curiosity at the same time and eventually lead me back to Perth and down to Margaret River.
There, I established a commercial photography practice (Margaret River Fine Art Photography) and an online art gallery and giftstore (Made in Margaret River). I was also a commissioned artist for the Margaret River Cow Parade 2010 with Self Portrait of Margaret River on display at Flametree Winery and sponsored by Eventscorp.
I have coordinated both solo and group exhibitions in Margaret River and Perth. A DCA grant was received for the body of work entitled China’s Hong Kong, a photoessay on identity of youth in Hong Kong for the ten-year anniversary of the return to China. The exhibition at Perth Centre for Photography was opened by Max Pam and curated by David Dare Parker. It was also hosted by Arts Margaret River at the Cultural Centre.
Solo exhibitions Open Road (2010) and Reportage Cambodia (2008) were included in the FotoFreo Fringe festivals. Group exhibitions for the Iris Awards (2007) and Absolute Power (2006) were both held at the Perth Centre for Photography.
Publications as author and photographer include a cookbook entitled Chefs of the Margaret River Region (2011) and the surf history book Surfing Down South (2014).
