As a final year photography student, in the 80’s, I was given an incredible opportunity to enter the doors of the amazing Jenny Bannister, Australia's iconic fashion designer, on her rooftop, Flinders lane studio, Melbourne. This was an inspirational time in the Australian fashion scene. After completing the degree, my wonderful mentor, photographer James Walsh introduced me to Bernard Cumming, creative director of DDB in Melbourne, newly arrived from the USA. At the age of 21, Bernard gave me my 1st TV commercial, he invited the client out for lunch and left me with the model and make-up artist to create twenty-one Black& White images which would see the commercial made purely from my stills, for the fashion label James Loustas on location at the original Mietta's, in Alfred Place, Melbourne. My journey has allowed me to work with Myer, David Jones, Country Road, Sportsgirl and more recently The Ark, MMSohn, Cappellazzo Couture, Melbourne Bride Magazine, Harpers Bazaar and Vogue.
