About me - The Overrated Photographer

About me

Welcome to The Overrated Photographer. I'm a forty something year old Melbourne based amateur photographer covering a broad range of genre's from portraits to street. I travel a bit for business so my photos are not confined to Melbourne.

I got into photography doing some kitesurfing photos, but with the arrival of my first daughter, my focus shifted to family and the vast majority of my photos are either family or street. I still try to get extreme sports when I am not kitesurfing myself.

My current non-personal photography work is confined to charity and not-for-profit engagements where I am engaged in photography for a number charity events to give back to the community and help support fund raising for these organisations. These include the homeless and cancer events.

I do not currently do any paid commercial work as I run a successful non-photography business and this allows me to explore my personal creativity with photography.

My gear

I use primarily Fuji gear with some Yongnuo flashes and triggers. Profoto is on my list but sadly profoto don't support TTL/HSS strobes on Fuji so I have a little waiting to go.
