Thanks for taking the time to check out my page and my photography. If you're interested in any of my work or looking for a photographer for a custom shoot, I'd love for you to get in touch. I'm a Melbourne based photographer, and whilst nature and landscape photography is my passion, I have also worked on a number of portrait, wedding and business-related projects.
I've been a "nature nerd" for as long as I can remember. Whether it was admiring the incredible photography on the Australian Bureau of Meteorology calendar at my Nana's house as a kid, or my bird-obsessed Grade 6 teacher taking us out in search of Wedge-Tailed Eagles - the passion has always been there.
The camera came later, but is really just an extension of that passion, and a way for me to try to communicate the things I love most about our planet. The name "Pale Blue Dot Photography" refers to Carl Sagan's famous monologue, which describes Earth as a tiny pale blue dot in perspective to the enormity of the Universe.
The passage resonates with me, reminding me to appreciate where we sit in the scope of things, and to appreciate the world around me. That's my story, and this page is the pale blue dot that we call home, as seen through my eyes - I hope you enjoy it.
