My background is
life photography, but I deem myself an urban photographer for
my personal work; most pictures in PHOTOART are street shots from Sydney - I

bring you good photography, as well as an appreciation of art.

You can comment on any of my blogs, or indeed my book & essays on Facebook ... or just send me an email; feedback is much appreciated.
