Shane’s Back ground
Shane had a unique upbringing. His Dad was the Lighthouse Keeper at Seal Rocks which gave him some amazing experiences and this is where his love for the ocean and it’s surrounds began. He spent most of his time at the Seal Rocks Lighthouse where his Dad was the Head Lighthouse Keeper. After 7 years at Seal Rocks he then moved to Forster Tuncurry and has lived there ever since.
His photography first started as a hobby, capturing dolphins, sunsets and waves. His hobby developed into a huge passion which he then turned into his career in 1999.
