About

I'm 35 years old and live in Bendigo, Australia. Photography has been a hobby of mine ever since I picked up my first SLR camera several years ago. I have always had a passion for art and the environment and through photography I am able to this express this. As you can see from my images I like to photograph Australian native flora and fauna.

I started this photoblog back in November 2005 after being inspired by other blogs I visited. This site enables me to show/share my images that probably would have otherwise stayed hidden away on a CD under my desk!
