He confronts challenges specific to Perth, such as limited architectural and landscape variety, but he skillfully uncovers the city’s hidden beauty, crafting breathtaking images.

For photography newcomers, experimenting with different cameras and lenses can be invaluable. Investing in expensive equipment isn’t necessary; instead, find a camera that suits your needs and start practising. Concentrate on composition and capturing moments that hold personal significance.
