Elements of Focus is a new project where I will be exploring motor cars through photography. The cars in this project will range from some of the rarest to even a few more common examples, but they are being photographed in a way that has never been seen before.

Following my success at the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast, I will be heading to Japan in 2020 as an accredited Media Photographer. The Elements of Focus exhibition will be a fundraiser to enable me to go the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games with my guide dog Leo, and a carer for the duration of the Games.

For this very exciting photographic project, I am being mentored by Dishan Marikar, one of the best car photographers in Melbourne. He will be mentoring me for the next 12 months to show me new techniques in car photography. I am very honoured and proud to have Dishan teach me new skills in this area of photography. This mentorship is proudly sponsored by the Pathways program at Arts Access Victoria and funded by NDIS under my plan.

I aim to raise $30,000 from this project, which will cover all costs for the Tokyo trip. I will need these funds for return flights from Melbourne to Japan, accommodation and transport for 3 weeks for myself, Leo and a carer for the duration of my trip to ensure my safety whilst in Japan. Details of the exhibition, to be held at the end of 2019, will be announced in the near future. Thank you to everyone who has already supported my goal for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.
