PICTURE YOURSELF WELL

Recent Activity
About Me

 Ex Royal Australian Air Force, Vietnam veteran, qualified teacher and workplace trainer and have suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder officially since 1995. I hold a Bachelor of Administration degree, a Teaching Diploma and a Diploma of Photojournalism.

I am about to enrol in a research Phd in Therapeutic Photography through Griffith University in Brisbane after discovering the therapeutic benefits of photography when teaching people with a disability (from mild intellectual to severe Cerebral Palsy and non verbal autism), mental illness or at risk adolescents.

I am of the firm belief that therapeutic photography was the catalyst in helping me learn to cope with PTSD. I am also looking forward to sharing information with people who understand the therapeutic qualities that photography can provide.
