It’s a choice, not an occupation.

Good people, good prices.

This is one of the only photos of me working. This is the nature of being behind the camera.

TEMPLAR PHOTOGRAPHIC is a hobby business that helps me supplement other camera work I take on, on my quest to be an eccentric film maker. I’ve been at it since 2009, transition to video came in 2013. My business may be small but it allows me to take on interesting projects.
Since leaving my job in Melbourne as an Aerial DOP (for Swarm UAV) I am now taking on higher education and plan to release a few more documentaries, produced on higher budgets, over the coming years.
I’m just a man with a dream, and Templar Photographic is the vehicle to take me there.
