VIC Racing Photographer
Taron is 29 years of age and has spent the past 11 years serving in the Royal Australian Navy. Currently ranked as Petty Officer, Taron is now serving at HMAS Cerberus in Victoria.
Born in Ballina in Northern NSW, Taron first gained an interest in thoroughbred racing at a young age. This interest soon developed into several part time stable hand roles after school and Taron undertook his later years of schooling with the intention of becoming a Cadet Steward with QRL.
While Taron ultimately decided to join the Royal Australian Navy, he worked as a barrier attendant for Northern Rivers Racing on weekends for several years. Taron took the opportunity to combine his hobby of photography with his love of the thoroughbred racing industry in 2005, and it has continued to develop since then.
Taron is currently married with a 15 month old daughter, and shares his passion for his family with his love of thoroughbred racing, cricket, Parramatta Eels and the NSW Blues in the State Of Origin.
