I was born in Tamworth (NSW) with my twin sister, Lisa. I like to say that I’m the good twin and she is the evil twin but I might be a little biased. I then moved to the Gold Coast to begin primary school and have lived here ever since. I love that I am able to call the Gold Coast my home.
After high school I studied at Bond University where I graduated with a Bachelor in Film & Television. This is where my love for photography began and I often wonder if I would have never gone to University would I have discovered this passion for photography.
I have worked on 3 short films, all of which have been selected into numerous international film festivals including the Cannes International Film Festival (France) , International Film Festival of Cinematic Arts (USA), Palm Springs International Short Film Market (USA) and the Corona Fastnet Short Film Festival (Ireland).
I love to laugh and consider myself a pretty laid back person so when I’m not doing photography or videography here are some of the fun little hobbies you might find me doing.
- Watching way too much TV-seriously is there a disorder for watching too much TV because I think I might have it. Some of my favourite shows are 24, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Prison Break, Criminal Minds, Weeds, Las Vegas, American Horror Story, Covert Affairs, Nikita, Will & Grace, Orange Is the New Black, WWE and of course the trashy reality shows which I am a little ashamed to admit I love watching, mainly any of The Real Housewives shows (Atlanta, New Jersey, I watch them all!)
- Keeping fit– I really love working out, I find it therapeutic. Whether it’s going to the gym, swimming or running I like to stay active. Growing up I was a competitive swimmer and swam at the State Championships so I guess that active lifestyle has stuck with me into my adult life.
- Anything WWE Wrestling related-I am admitting it now that I am addicted to WWE! There I said it, now we can all move on. Seriously though whether it’s watching WWE on TV, playing the latest video game or going to a live WWE event I will know about it. One of the best experiences was going to Wrestlemania in the USA where I was screaming and booing alongside 72,000 people! There really is nothing else like it.
- Playing with my dog– I love animals, especially my dog Chino & Ollie
I love photography and consider myself extremely lucky to be able to do what I love. Hopefully this has given you a little insight into me and if my crazy wrestling addiction has not turned you away yet, please get in contact with me as I would love to meet you!Kirk Willcox
