Cyrus found a vocation in photography in 1994, and even before had been snapping away whenever he could.


During the first 4 years Cyrus exhibited in galleries & cafés and sold to collectors.


The demand in wedding photography, however, focused his energies towards being a wedding specialist and mentor to many new wedding creatives.


In 2008 this culminated in the founding of Emotion Image, a studio made to promote this new pool of talent.


Today Cyrus continues to specialise in weddings and has been nominated in 2008, 2009 and 2010 for Australia’s “Top Wedding Photographers”.


In 2011, Cyrus returned to mainly waterscapes. His new works are full of vibrancy and many depict surreal scenes over long exposures at dawn, dusk and night.


Cyrus has been published in Perth based Artist’s Chronicle, Nationally in Capture Magazine, has had four stories published in the West’s “Inside Cover”, and been interviewed by Todd Johnson on ABC radio.
