Welcome to my website. It is always exciting for me to share the love I have for photography. Although I have a thriving video and photography production company (Smith & Collins) this website is dedicated to the light painting side of my work.
As you will see in the Ball of Light Documentary at the bottom of this page, before I discovered photography I was living a life of excess. I struggled with depression and alcohol. This culminated in me moving away from my home country of New Zealand to South Australia. Here I have built a life around the creative fields.
Getting away from the city and spending time in nature creating beautiful images is my release. In recent times teaching the art of light painting photography to as many people as possible has become my passion.
Enjoy your time here on the site. I hope you learn about our exciting and vibrant art form and maybe become inspired to have a go yourself.
