Photography – Sydney, NSW

I'm a Dad, Husband & Graphic Designer living in Sydney's Sutherland Shire. I came to photography wanting only to learn & hoping to find a new medium to express myself. I ended up finding something that brings me endless joy. I grew up a western Sydney boy from an Italian family obsessed with water, swimming & in my teenage & adult years, the surf culture. Soon enough the pull to jump into the ocean with a camera was too strong & I focused on capturing waves, surfers & the beautiful light first thing in the morning. By getting amongst the waves this started a new obsession. My favourite type of scene to capture is when that one person, by themselves is soaking in that first light completely alone. I'm passionate about creativity, music, the ocean & time with friends & family. Sometimes I feel like all those elements are playing together at once when you're in the water watching the sunrise. It’s as magical as it is dangerous. I hope you enjoy my images & if you've never jumped in to the ocean at first light maybe I can inspire you to take that step. ...more
