A Melbourne photographer, independent journalist, and historian. Social justice activist for more than 30 years in Australia, presently living in Melbourne. A citizen journalist and reluctant climate warrior who has attended UN Climate conferences as an NGO observer COP21, COP22, COP23, COP25. I also post videos to www.engagemedia.org/Members/takver/videos, and as Takvera on Youtube.


I have had a camera in my hand since I was 13 to document places, people and events. I presently use a Canon EOS 600D and a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W110. While a good camera and lens can contribute to making a great photo, I am a firm believer that the passion of the photographer and how a camera is used by the person behind the lens is far more important - that is the art of the photographer.
