I'm a passionate photographer from Melbourne, Australia.

I consider myself a minimalist photographer mainly because I like to use only what I need to create an image I love. It fits like a glove to my personality and my life philosophy.
I also like to use long exposure techniques to create that sense of reality and to allow the flow of nature to be visible in my images.

Most of my work is in black and white because I love how I can use light, tones and shades to mold an image, a bit like clay sculpting. As a result, I can create images which are strong and powerful, with high contrast or soft and gentle.
