Being a photographer for nearly 20 years, my photographic work has been featured in advertising
and editorial pieces all over the globe. Wanting more from my career, I moved to Shanghai,
China in 2002 and quickly embraced the energy, shape, and colour of the dynamic city. Seeing
the need and importance of a versatile creative environment in Shanghai, I created Limelight Studio.

The name Limelight is a tribute to my humble beginning as an assistant photographer in Melbourne, Australia during the 1990s. The original Limelight was a group of 7 photographers operating under one roof in a somewhat chaotic and highly competitive environment. Here is where I learnt the trade, having the opportunity to get to grips with all the equipment and what I needed to do to succeed and continue to develop and constantly refine my skills to the ever changing technologies and styles of photography.  I chose the name Limelight Studio to further carry the touch of my mentors. To this day I work closely with one; Eddie Javier who has since moved on to work at RMIT University teaching a new generation the art. We work together with him providing invaluable experience to his students, showing them what life as a profession photographer really entails and the dedication, skill and love of the craft that it takes to make it in this highly competitive industry.
