I'm a photographer only by passion and, while I attack every opportunity to capture something I find beautiful or interesting, I don't pretend to be a serious authority on the subject. I've never asked or been offered pay for any photo I've taken and any knowledge or opinions I have about photography have the hint of a layman about them. But I do enjoy it. I do it as often as I can and I'm generally happiest with my camera in my hand.
Originally from Tasmania, I now live in Queensland. For money, I work as a digital artist in a field about as close to photography as you can get. Certainly one with enough similarities that I carry methods and discoveries between the two and get the occasional tax break.
