After a few months pen pushing back at the Admiralty, I became bored, and being a keen amateur photographer, I resigned from the Admiralty and found a job with a photographic studio. The Australian Government was advertising for ex-servicemen to emigrate to Australia, so I applied at Australia House in London, and in early 1948 I was on the boat to Sydney. There I worked as a photographer with Dayne Studio until 1952, when I married Pamela, a Queenslander, and jointly set up a photographic studio in Brisbane. We had four adopted children. Encouraged by an architect friend, I took a six year evening course while working in the daytime in architects' offices. I became a registered architect in January, 1966.
