Orang-utan in a man’s world.

Biography: I'm an Australian photographer specialising in wildlife and wild animal portraits. Primate became a passion for me, especially after photographing Mountain Gorilla in Rwanda. For 5 years I've been travelling worldwide studying through the lens, all the faces and movement of primate. I'm obssessed with wanting to share my connection with humans. The aim is to entice human curiousity, and for humans to see the parallel of emotions they share with the sentient-non human primate that are on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
