" Photography for me is far more than a profession & hobby.
When it's been an intrinsic part of your life for near five decades it becomes more than just a fleeting moment captured by mechanics, or a shoebox collection of images.

" Life changed dramatically one night back in 1967 when I first heard The Beatles'Penny Lane' on the kitchen wireless.
The despised nightly ritual of drying the tea dishes with my sister was refreshingly broken by the sweetest sounds I'd ever heard. Unbridled joy smothered my mother's chastisement for dawdling, "...listen to this, I don't know what it means but it does something to me ... it's telling me something". True!
A year later at the tender age of sixteen I headed for Sydney in search of that something.
