I am not a street photographer that has studied the works of the renown pioneers of the genre, nor have I completed a photography qualification. Simply I am mostly a self-taught amateur photographer. Photography was a natural extension of my love of travel. The journey probably started during a trip to Ethiopia and Morocco. I captured a couple of images that drove me to explore photography as something more than a means of taking record pictures. Upon returning home I started to make the effort to go out and walk the streets and alleys of my hometown Melbourne and its inner suburbs, and in the process I started to discover my home cities true soul. From there I just photographed whatever captured my attention, slowly forming an understanding, vision and style for my photography.
