Funnily enough, photography is what got me into marketing and it was through the power of content that I learnt the most about storytelling and its impact on businesses.
I’ve been a travel photographer, photojournalist and as cameras brought new video capabilities I’ve moved more into that medium. Take a look at some of my work below.
I’m like most people around the world that love to travel to see new places and meet interesting people. What makes me a little different – and lucky – is that I do my job while I travel which lets me do it more often than most. I love this aspect of my work and if I had to choose one thing to do for the rest of my life this would be it.
Highlights have been climbing Mt Fuji during the off season and living to tell the tale (with some very sweet photos as well), soaking in the sights and sounds of the Pushkar Camel Fair in India as well as camping my way around New Zealand in the summer.
During a long stint at the U.S. Embassy I had the chance to photograph celebrities and VIP’s from all around the globe. A notable one was Barack Obama twice during his presidency. These are considered one of the toughest photography gigs (along with an Olympics which I’m yet to do… yet) and I happened to do it twice.
I also got the chance to photograph Buzz Aldrin, a Wiggles concert, several sporting matches and so many other crazy experiences all because of my work. I still love shooting these types of jobs – nearly as much as the travel work even!
While I love photography, filmmaking comes a close second. Spending time telling a more in depth story has become something I’m very passionate about. Slow travel is a huge focus for me and filmmaking works in perfectly with that process.
I’ve interviewed Ambassadors and Football stars as well as the local hot air balloon owner and love every single piece of work.
