A practitioner of honesty; in photography and life. Adam combines careful composition with light-footed spontaneity to uncover the human truth. With an eye for dramatic tension, his work reflects a life spent roaming within and beyond the wild Tasmanian landscape, responding to diverse creative briefs. He instinctively turns the abstract into the iconic. Making rare moments accessible to a new audience.
Drawn to photography as a teenager, technical proficiency and an understanding of image making were honed by a decade of design and creative direction. This period also marked the beginning of a diverse creative network that continues to evolve, and bring scalability to Adam's work to this day.
Architecture, people and landscape are the heroes. But the best story is always yet to be told.
