I love taking photos of interesting people - candid shots - preferably in their natural environment, not in a studio. Here is a selection from the last few years.

 

Team Kyrgios

If you've ever wondered what Nick's family are like I can assure you they are very nice. They don't look too bad either :)

Taken for the Kyrgios family at the 2020 Australian Open.

Mark Webber

Australian Formula One superstar Mark Webber joins the throngs of tennis fans at the 2018 Australian Open.

'Throngs’… Who ever says 'throngs'? Mark didn't, just in case you were wondering, or if he did it was out of earshot. ‘Earshot’… Who ever says ‘earshot’? Mark may have, but by that stage I couldn’t hear him, which is when he possibly may have said the word ‘throngs’:) #youneverknow #probablynot #whataloadofrubbish

Jeff Green

I had the very good pleasure of meeting this funny bloke - UK stand-up comedian Jeff Green - after his hilarious show, 17 Mar 2017. He’s not just funny on stage, but off it too! Part of the Brisbane Comedy Festival @ Brisbane Powerhouse.

If you look closely you can see the cue for a new joke on his hand. No joke.

Racing legend Jim Richards with Beth O’Connell - Touring Car Masters, Queensland Raceway, July 2016.

It’s funny... Some people will look at this photo and think “That’s a really good photo of Jim”, while others will think “Oh, she’s nice”, while some will wish they’d both get out of the way so they can see the car!!!

John Pearn & Lesley Simkin

At a 2017 ANZAC Day Memorial service I'd taken a few photos using my fisheye lens when I saw this decorated pair - John Pearn & Lesley Simkin - who served together in Vietnam. Graciously they were both happy to be photographed & shared a little about themselves. I think 'decorated' is an understatement!

At first I was annoyed that I had my fisheye lens on but although it distorts, it allowed me to capture John & Lesley in close quarters from top to bottom including the Australian flag behind. So it was a good 'choice' after all:)
