Born in Dundee, Scotland; grew up near Wellington, New Zealand. I've been exploring the world for the last 17 years on a perpetual voyage 'back home' that never seemed to get me there. I'm finally getting there at the end of 2008.

I miss shooting film, I still love the texture, definition and colours, but I guess I also love the convenience of digital (I definitely don't miss lugging a sack of 200 rolls of film about!).
Everything before that had been shot on slide film ... I was reluctant to change to the pixel given my love for the celluloid ... one of these days when I'm finally reunited with my belongings back in New Zealand, I will have a lifetime's work with my huge stock of film shot around the world over the first 17 years of wandering the planet ...
