His work has appeared regularly in numerous Australian and International magazines including Vogue, Marie Claire, Who Weekly, Q, NME and Rolling Stone with subjects ranging from Cate Blanchett and Steve Irwin to Kylie Minogue and Radiohead.
He has published 2 books. Facing, in 2004, was a collection of celebrity portraits spanning a decade, which became an exhibition, touring Australian Art Galleries for more than 2 years. In 2011 he published Life & Times in the Republic of Broken Hill, combining a collection of portraits and anecdotes to create a portrait of the town itself.
