To delve deeply into the spirit of my subjects, exploring, articulating and celebrating the unique beauty of animals, nature and the urban landscape, all within a distinctly Australian context. The nature of our bond with animals and the environment is a powerful and passionate one. By focusing on heroic, comic and at times, dark visions, to explore the way animals, nature and urban contexts resonate within our emotional lives, I hope to engage you the viewer, directly in this experience.
A central focus has been my Belgian Shepherd WolfCub - with whom I share a deep spiritual connection. He suffers from epilepsy, which is now controlled. Animal lovers will understand the heartbreak that comes with dealing with this. We have been through so much together. My images have earned WolfCub a worldwide collection of admirers who embrace his heroic beauty, grace of movement and mystical spirit. I try to convey all my love and the breadth of our bond through the images of him. WolfCub is a source of strength and inspiration to me, as well as to his fans, who appreciate his unique qualities and the way the vitality of his character is captured.
Check out my FACEBOOK PAGE for the latest WolfCub images, as well as assorted dogs, cats and horses. We now have over 80,000 fans!

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
