These are a collection of images I took last May at beautiful little Lake Gwelup, in the suburbs of Perth, Western Australia. With the lake half empty before the winter rains arrived, I spent a week morning and evenings at the Lake endeavoring to capture the shapes and textures of the lake and its inhabitant's simplistic beauty.

I am a photographer living in beautiful Perth, Western Australia. My personal favourite style of photography is landscape and travel (combining two loves is a real bonus). But more recently I am enjoying pushing the boundaries between photography and art, with a particular emphasis on movement in imagery and especially that of the ocean, of which we are so blessed with here in Australia. And my other newfound love is aerial photography. This aerial vantage point for photography opens up a whole new way of capturing at the extraordinary beauty of Mother Earth.

Awards ​I've had some accolades awarded to me by Australian Photography in 2015, 2017 & 2018, awarding my Landscape, Black&White, Nature and Aerial entries as Commended, Highly Commended and also in the Top 10. Also in 2017, I was awarded Top 10 Emerging Photographers by Capture Mag in their Photographer of the Year's Art category and again this year, I was awarded Top 20 for my Art Series entry "Aerial Art" and also got Highly Commended awards for my entries in Landscape and Travel categories.
