The Artwork

Evening light from the Upper Barrakka Valletta looking out to Fort Saint Angelo, Malta. Fort Saint Angelo played a pivotal part in the Great Siege of Malta in 1565. It is still the seat of the Sovereign Military Order of Saint John of Jerusalem. Just off to the left is an area is called the Bighi Complex. It took a lot of the allied forces from the Dardanelles Campaign Gallipoli during WWI. It is one of the reasons Malta was known as the nurse of the Mediterranean.

The Artist

I have been working as a professional international photographer/photojournalist since 1992. My work is my breath, my passion and my expression. My process and concepts lay in part in early western philosophical texts. These texts assist me to come up with final the interpretation for my images. Through my work as a working professional photographer, it has been an amazing journey for just over 25 years now. Not only in Australia but also world wide. These days I mostly reside in Europe, I enjoy my work exploring the fabric of life through contemporary and historical culture, landscapes interiors and street shooting and so much more..

Already a Knight of Saint Michael of the Wing and of the Royal House of Portugal, in 2017 I was made a Knight of the Imperial and Royal Russian Order of St. Stanislaus and a noble in the Imperial House of Romanov for photographic services to H.I.H the Grand Duchess of Russia. Also in 2017, I was awarded a medal of Honour from the Real Academis Sancti Ambrosii Martyris for my photographic work and services. In the same ceremony I was also awarded the prestigious Medalha Marechal Trompowsky from the Brazilian Goverment in conjunction with the Real Academis Sancti Ambrosii Martyris for photographic work and services to nobility and chivalric orders internationally.

My main inspirations for my work are: Socrates, Plato, Aristotle Marcus Aurelius, Dante Alighieri, Voltaire, Shakespeare, William Turner, Caravaggio, Michelangelo, Van Gogh, Klimt, Frederick McCubbin and Sir Arthur Streeton.


I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy seeking the images out and bringing them to you.

"The journey continues"
