Rod has been involved in the photographic industry since 1973. He has gained experience in photojournalism writing for the Daily News, WAngler and international motoring magazines. Rod has been employed in a variety of roles across photographic genres such as wedding, corporate, product, motor sport, cars and bikes, fashion and mining.

Over the years Rod has owned and used a variety of cameras and lenses ranging from his first SLR, the Minolta STR-101 through to his current DSLR the Pentax K3. Rod still uses film occasionally as he feels it helps remind him to concentrate on getting it right in-camera, not in Photoshop. Rod aims is to help others make the most of the equipment they are using to produce results they will be proud to hang on their walls.
