I have been involved in photography and the media for 18 years, primarily working as an independent social documentary, human rights and environmental photojournalist in Australia and overseas; independent newspaper editing; teaching photography and photojournalism; production of photographic shows; and strategy and documentation with numerous non-government organisations – including in the late 1990’s I was one of the initial free-speech activists (prior to Wikileaks, Facebook and Twitter) working on one of the ground-breaking global Indymedia news websites now based in over 200 cities worldwide.
Choosing to remain independent I have only photographed issues that connect with my values and conscience. I have not photographed for commercial organisations. I supported my work by previously driving a night taxi in Sydney, funding from relevant organisations and sales from my work. While working on my photojournalism projects I teach photojournalism and photography at the Australian Centre for Photography (ACP) and photographic courses at Sydney Photographic Workshops (SPW).
My main body of work covers the intersection of the effects of mining on indigenous communities and the environment in Australia and overseas, the anti corporate globalisation movement, human rights, social injustice issues and environmental destruction.
