Director | Bachelor of Pharmacy

What make's your job rewarding?

I enjoy seeing the joy that a customer gets when they have captured a special moment in their lives.  I enjoy teaching the basics of photography so customers can get the best results from the camera's we sell. 

What's your favourite camera?

Box Brownie - I took my first ever photo with it and I was hooked.

What's your passion for photography?

Whether it is travel or a family function, I feel that I go there to take photos rather than take photos because I am there.


Whilst I have worked at hiring and training the best possible team for the store, I still enjoy spending time with our customers and helping with their particular photographic challenges.
