In 2006 I created an exhibition of portraits which I called Many Faces. That exhibition came and went but to this day I have continued to photograph people. Lots of beautiful faces have passed through my studio. It’s like feeding an unquenchable thirst for creative expression that I do mainly for the love of the craft. I began photographing this project in Sydney during 2003. My studio is now in Lithgow NSW. There are no professional models. All participants have either requested to be photographed or have responded to my desire to photograph them. Sometimes there are underlying themes, weeks in the planning. On other occasions I have simply asked participants to turn up and followed my intuition. Sometimes we've shot nudes and at other times themed conceptual fashion where I have designed garments for participants to wear. The objective is always the same, an artistic and experimental series of portraits.
