"I have a very modest setup but only use the best quality equipment to process my images.
I live in the outback and the room which my office is set up was the original post office for Marree in South Australia when the Ghan Train line was still operational. It still has all the original shelving and drawers.
Here you can see it still has the original old pencil sharpener in the right corner which I still use. That shelf runs right across about 6 metres, and this is where people use to come in and address envelopes and fill forms out etc. The opposite side is where they would go to get served.
Even the table that my computer is sitting on is an original, and although its been moved, it was used by post office staff back in the day. So basically, its the old mixed with the very new technology."
