“I don't like people saying we have destroyed the world and being negative as this makes people feel that it is too late to do anything about it."

Born on a farm near Goulburn, Peter went to boarding school in Sydney as a boy. This probably encouraged his broad view of life.

After school he returned to work on the land as a jackaroo, wool presser and general rural contractor before becoming a bricklayer and builder. While loving building he has found a natural progression into photography and then books.

Not knowing where this compulsion comes from, he sometimes feels it is God playing a practical joke.

Now travelling broadly to take photographs, which have been exhibited, Peter is relishing the pull of new horizons. Photographing the landscape and environment with people in it showing how their culture has developed largely because of the environment they live in continues draw him in.

“I don't like people saying we have destroyed the world and being negative as this makes people feel that it is too late to do anything about it. I like to show how beautiful and diverse the world is and encourage people to join together to look after our planet”
