About Me

Hi, my name is Heath.

I didn’t want to bore you will all the details of who, where and what,

So here are some little known facts about me;

-I was born at St George’s Hospital in Melbourne, which also received a cameo in Mad Max. (The hospital not me)

-I am married to a wonderful woman and together we share our lives with our two beautiful and energetic daughters, two cats and dog.

-I have both a Diploma of Illustrative Photography and a Bachelor of Arts (photography), so somedays I get quite technical about things.

-The only movie I have ever felt I could have watched again immediately is ‘Hable Con Ella’ (Talk to Her) by Pedro Amaldovar.

-My photos have appeared on the Front Page of The Age Newspaper and The Green Guide.

-I love the ocean and every summer promise myself to spend more time in it.

-This year I am hoping to take up freediving.

-I love art and I love photography. Marrying the two successfully is my ambition and an ongoing project

-Honest portraits of people that capture those beautiful moments we only get glimpses of is my daily challenge.

-In 2003 I organized a group exhibition called ‘Local Heroes’ to recognize the success of migrants in their communities in Melbourne. There was standing room only on opening night and we raised $500 for our local arm of the UNHCR.

-My favorite style of food is Moroccan.

-My aim is to use my gift to benefit others whose voice is hidden, supressed and silent.

-In October 2015 I created a project called 'Your brother, your sister' to bring greater awareness of the atoll nation of Kiribati which is facing an uncertain future as sea levels rise. We succeeded in taking 200 portraits from there and exhibiting them in Paris during the 2015 Climate Change Summit
