He obtained a Bachelor of Arts (Photography) in 1981 from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. After working as a photographer in Melbourne for several years, he moved to Queensland to take up a lecturing position with the Queensland College of Art. In 2003 he was awarded a PhD (By Publication) by Griffith University for his photographic achievements.
