As a photographer, Nelson has a passion for capturing the ocean, night sky, and beautiful landscapes that surround us. The majority of scenes displayed on this website are from Australia, but he has shot on multiple locations including Canada, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and New Zealand.
Although not sponsored (yet! :P), the majority of equipment he uses is Canon. He's currently shooting with a 1dx mark ii, but much of the art you'll see on his portfolio was shot with the 5d mark iii, or Nikon D90.
In addition to all the canon merch, the kit wouldn't be complete without a drone. Nelson's current kit drone is a DJI Phantom 4 Pro, which may be a huge pain in the a** taking overseas, but definitely outputs high dynamic photos and 4k video.

Nelson is a Canadian-Australian photographer living in Sydney, Australia.
Growing up in Canadia, his journey into photography began with film in 2000. In 2009 he bought his first DSLR, a Nikon D90, which was likely the gateway into his tech addiction.
Around the same time as getting the D90, he moved to Taiwan, which presented a completely new and unique world to capture. During that time he travelled to multiple countries around Asia including Vietnam, Malaysia, China and Singapore - and collected gear along the way.
In 2012, Nelson moved to Australia to study medicine. In 2013 he traded the D90 for a Canon 5D Mark III, and never looked back. Since that time he has perfected his trade - both in composition and post processing, and continued to push the limits of his photography. Most recently he has move up to the Canon 1DX Mark II, and simultaneously back to film.
Outside of photography, Nelson works as an emergency doctor in Sydney. Most days are spent with his wife and his golden retriever enjoying the sun and surf of Sydney’s coast. Days off are usually spent surfing, travelling, and playing with cameras.
