I began my career in professional photography in 1980. While working freelance, I satisfied my passion and developed my vision by pursuing personal work, which included landscape, portrait, and street photography. In 2003 I ceased working professionally so that I could concentrate totally on pursuing my own work. In 2010 I joined the Melbourne committee of the Ballarat International Foto Biennale (BIFB), which is now a member of the world-wide photography festival grouping, the Festival de la Luz (Festival of Light). This is proving to be immensely satisfying.
