Born and raised in the Philippines until his early teens, Adrian has since lived most of his life in Australia and makes his home in Melbourne.
With a background in theatre and performance art, Adrian initially studied Zoology and was going to be a marine biologist. However, the idea of moving to Townsville, Queensland on his own to study marine science seemed like a formidable task at the time - he was 18. Instead, he remained in Melbourne and worked in community theatre for some time after completing his studies in the performing arts. He was gifted a film camera some 15 years ago but it wasn't until later on that he decided to go back to school again to study photography. It's been a long journey to get to this point. And he is still travelling.
Adrian is based in Melbourne, Australia but can also be found travelling for personal and commissioned work in Europe and the US at least twice a year.
