Adam grew up in the regional city of Mount Isa, in the far North-West region of Queensland, Australia. He is university qualified and holds degrees in both Business Communications and Arts and a Graduate Diploma in International Relations and Trade.
Adam became seriously interested in photography in 2000 when he travelled to Papua New Guinea to attend the spectacular Mount Hagen Cultural Show and hasn not been able to put the camera down since. He developed a strong interest in tribal photography as a result of his own Indigenous cultural heritage.
“My own heritage is a unique blend of cultures. From my mother’s side I am a descendent of the Meriam people of the Torres Strait Islands and the Wik people in the Cape York Peninsula area. There is also Spanish-Phillipino heritage as well. On my father’s side there is Irish, English and Scottish ancestry. I am proud to be an Australian above all”.
Adam has lived and worked in Samoa (South Pacific), Angola, Liberia, Gabon, and Ethiopia.
His current work in the mining and exploration sector in Africa sends him far off the beaten track to remote communities and locations. He regularly attends cultural ceremonies as part of his Environment and Community Relations role that allows him combine his work and passion for photography.
