I hope you like what you see and that these images touch your emotions in some way. That’s what I try to capture each time I see a face, a scene…….a ‘moment’.
I cut my photographic teeth in the smoky, beery pubs and clubs of Melbourne chasing that elusive image where light and sound touched heart and minds. That’s what still excites me! Maybe we have even bumped elbows at a bar somewhere.
Nowadays my passions include live performance, portrait and travel photography.
Please contact me with any queries or comments you have – I’d be very pleased to hear from you.
Portraits – Performance – Travel – Street
As soon as I saw Mark’s work I knew it to be the work of a photographic artist who implicitly understands the context he‘s working in; the spaces, the angles, and crucially the moments in the performance that convey the maximum emotional intensity to the viewer. His eye for composition is the icing on the cake. When I first met Mark he gave me some pictures that he’d taken of a band of mine in the late ‘70s, which were followed with shots he took of me that same day at the Caravan Club, both sets of their time but both capturing the same universal truth. They looked good – very good. I was impressed. So impressed that, with Mark’s kind permission, I used his iconic black and white shot of me playing harmonica in I’ll Be Gone at the Caravan Club for my Facebook page and to advertise my successful RetroSpectrum show at the recent Adelaide Fringe.
