Full-time professional (paid work)
I have been shooting for more years than I care to remember. In the days of film I was a part time wedding photographer, and taught photography. I have spent a great deal of time shooting sporting and other events. My main occupation has ranged from high school teacher to IT professional, with farm labourer and shop manager brief stops on the way.
Recently I have moved to full time and am taking commissions for fashion, events, portraits and product photography. Currently I am shooting with Nikon professional equipment, and Hasselblad digital. I will also do a small amount of black and white large format film on 4x5.
I have a small studio space suitable for portrait and headshot, but mostly shoot on location, and rent professional studio facilities when necessary.
