Pizza Hunt is a photographic record of the iconic dine-in Pizza Hut restaurants that were erected in the thousands in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. Today, only a handful of these huts remain and they now have second lives as grocery stores, pawnshops, gospel churches, liquor stores and funeral homes - among other things. Those that remain, those that have not been demolished or are not slated for demolition, exist in the space where the unremarkable and the unforgettable meet.
Time is fleeting and moments may disappear as fast as they appear.
Time is lingering, slowly fading like a lovers kiss when saying goodbye.
Time is free yet priceless and once it's gone its gone. You never get it back.

The Head On Landscape Prize and NSW Parliament Landscape Photography Prize was launched in 2013 to encourage a new perspective of an old genre to push creative boundaries and promote work that is informed, but not limited, by traditional practices.
Head On has a broad approach to ‘Landscape’ which encompasses ‘large vista’ images of the natural environment (land or sea), urban or industrial settings. It may include people but are ‘incidental’ rather than the main subject matter.
The Head On Portrait Prize was established in 2004 to give both the public and photographers, both known and unknown, greater opportunity to view and exhibit high-quality photographic portraits. Today it is one of the biggest and most respected annual displays of portraiture in Australia, and the heart of the Head On Photo Festival.
We all know how intensive farming works, using industrial and scientific techniques to get the maximum amount of product at the lowest possible cost and using minimal space. Yet we know much less about how intensive farming operates producing animal skins that are destined for the worldwide high fashion market. The business volume that revolves around this trade amounts to millions of dollars and euros. Among the famous brands using animal skins are Gucci, Hermes, Cartier and Burberry.
Quiet, epic, restrained, powerful. These are the images that tell their stories quietly and succinctly, but create maximum impact. They can be captured anywhere - from moments in a daily life to split-seconds in sport, from landscapes to red carpets to art-like conceptual work. On a surface level, the photos are direct and uncomplicated. But they engage our emotions and spirit with a clear message, like a visual haiku. You get hooked and the story unfolds.
The sheer immensity of a supercell thunderstorm or erratic exponential growth of a bushfire captures our attention like nothing else. History has been shaped by such elemental phenomena which were for so long attributed to gods. Photography has not only helped with the scientific study of weather but also captured the very essence of which makes us stare in awe at them.
This small selection of some of the most destructive and beautiful weather in Australia displays its unquestionable grandeur and allure, it perpetually captivates Fairfax photographers and others alike.
This series explores 'Doo flying', a favourite past time in Scotland since the Victorian era. Thousands, mainly in the housing schemes of Edinburgh and Glasgow, fly horseman thief pigeons, or 'doos' from lofts, bedrooms, living rooms and sheds often built by hand.

My interest lies in the visual storytelling of people and places with a colorful cultural identity. Travelling provides me with inspiration and a background to my photography.
