Growing up in Byron Bay along the coastline of Northern NSW, Australia, it was his parent’s gift of a waterproof camera at five years old that set Craig on the path to his passion. While most kids his age were reading comics, Craig was immersing himself in early editions of National Geographic and when he turned 13 years old he spent all his savings on a 35mm SLR – a decision that ultimately set the course for his future. Entirely self-taught, Craig worked hard at his craft before making a life-changing decision and becoming a full-time professional photographer in 2004. Today his fine art photography offers a unique insight into the world around us. Primarily focusing upon marine and landscape imagery, subjects are presented in their natural environment in a manner which seeks to connect with audiences. Portraying the obvious as abstract, Craig’s images are engaging and beautiful at the same time.
