Trev W

Trevor has been a professional firefighter for 19 years.

“First and foremost, I am a father of two and a grandfather of four. I am 53 years old. I am employed full time in a reasonably physical job, which I enjoy greatly,” he said.

“In early 2010 I went through some pretty major life changes. I realised I had lost sight of what made life thrilling and invigorating and what type of person I wanted to be. I had come to believe that life gave you things and took things away and I had entered the part where it took away more than it gave. I couldn’t help but think there was more.

“Since then I have dusted off the cobwebs and jumped back into life … comprehensively. My brain is engaged, inquiring and questioning. My long-time interest in expressing thoughts and ideas in images has been untethered. I am now an avid photographer and visual artist and pondering life and all it has to offer.

“What piques my interest? Mediocrity, rhetoric from politicians, the unusual, the thought provoking, the complex. I consider myself an observer of life, a willing participant in my own life, and a contributor to society.”

Trevor is a Member of the United Firefighters Union of Australia (for occupational reasons).
