Born in the South Wales Valleys of the UK, Neville cannot remember a time when he didn't want to be a photographer. But it wasn't until migrating to Australia did he gain the opportunity of achieving his aim. In so doing he has Photographed some of Australia's famous faces, Bob Hawke, Malcolm Fraser, Ian (Molly) Meldrum just to name a few.
Now living in an age when photographs seem ephemeral, a picture can be shot and shared in seconds, Neville’s aim is not to just make portraits for the now, but rather create one of the sitter that will go beyond the now. When he meets his subjects he plays off them, this motivates his creative energy. Harnessing that energy, he transforms timidity into confidence and vulnerability into strength. Enabling us to see others as we hadn’t—couldn’t—before. His pictures are story driven. There is a trust he elicit’ in his subjects, yielding a natural unguarded moments in his images. From intimate portraits to the corporate office, Neville uncovers a charged connection with his subjects.
Neville sees the human face as a book, it's pages written over time in the form of marks, scars, wrinkles and skin. The face is our first form of communication, it shows how we have lived our lives, in joy or hopelessness, conveying our present and even more so our past, still the face will and always will be a mystery.
As a Christian Neville takes delight in this incredible beautiful world that we all live in so he's passionate about photographing it as much as he can. Neville will be the first to tell you, it is the light that moves him, of course the one true and only light is Christ Himself so when he see's light he see's Him. Just like John 1.v4, In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. This is why Neville is a portrait photographer.
