I often say to myself, "I'm not a photographer at all", but rather a filmmaker taking stills. The reason behind that is not of pride or ego, but the care about detail I had as a kid. Watching the emotion behind every painted frame of a Disney or Ghibli movie, and it's my lifelong goal to capture that.


I know perhaps taking headshots or shooting an event is a far stretch different from DP-ing a Marvel film or directing a Aaron Sorkin piece, but it's the same care, curiosity and (Aussie) fun I'll be bringing with me!
