Your memories of special moments and people can fade with the passage of time. Let me create something precious that will be treasured both now and for future generations.


Contact me for special deals on portrait packages for special occasions such as family reunions, birthdays, Mother’s day, and Christmas.




I started doing photography professionally 30 years ago. I graduated with a Diploma in Photography in 1984 and initially established my photographic business under the “Image Source” banner. I was also secretary for the WA division of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography from 1989 to 1990.


My background in electronic engineering and experience in process control and automation, led me to establish my own professional colour facilities doing custom printing for myself and for local one-hour film labs.


With a bit over a decade away from the industry due to the competing demands of studies and a career in engineering, I ‘sat out’ the painful transition years that saw the diminishing popularity of traditional film and the gradual evolution of digital technology in photography.


I have now established a new photographic studio among Perth’s hills, in the suburb of Lesmurdie. Set amidst exquisite gardens, the facilities offer both traditional studio portraits as well as contemporary environmental opportunities. Location is not a limitation though, as travel within the metropolitan area to other locations attracts only a modest sitting fee. Give me a call and discuss your ideas.


Every technical and artistic solution can be accommodated. I use the latest HASSELBLAD H3DII-39 medium format digital cameras (renowned as the best in the world) as well as the industry leading NIKON full frame FX and DX digital SLRs.


I also use large format CAMBO view cameras, as well as BRONICA and HASSELBLAD medium format film cameras.  With 45 different camera lenses ranging from 12mm to 600mm focal lengths, I have every photographic solution to meet your needs. Whether it’s minute macro photography or it’s to fill a bill-board; from ultra-wide angle commercial interiors to extreme telephoto nature; or wildlife or sports photography, I have it covered.
