Born in Natal, South Africa, Ty became enamoured with the natural world from an early age. His enthusiasm for exploration, attention to detail and education in the sciences, ultimately led to a pursuit in photography where he is able to document the intricacies of the world that surrounds us.
His interest in photographing sailing grew from a passion for capturing minimalist and geometric forms, a style evident in his aerial photography work of ski fields, salt lakes and traces of Australia’s vast and varied coastline.
