I was born in Sydney but spent most of my youth near the beaches of southwest France. After heading back to Australia for university studies, I focused on surf photography, and in 1990 the European surf-wear company, Oxbow, took me on and triggered my interest in other extreme sports. I have since worked with many champions in sports ranging from surfing and windsurfing to motocross, snowboarding, and rock climbing. My best images have made the covers of leading magazines and illustrated books, while my landscape and fashion assignments have appeared in advertisements around the globe. I am currently publishing a fine art poster collection and a book.
Still a keen surfer and snowboarder and a rusty black belt (second Dan) in the martial art of Kendo, in quiet moments I sit down at a keyboard and improvise. However, although now based on the island of Tahiti with my wife and son, striving to capture the magic of Polynesian life, I still tour the world, dedicated to the nomadic life, searching for the myriad forms of light that make unforgettable images.
