Warren has a passion for black and white travel photography. Particularly the animals, people and culture of East Africa, India and Asia. He also turns his camera to other areas of photography and never ceases to draw inspiration from the environment and wildlife of the Jervis Bay NSW area where he lives on a bushland property with his wife Yolande, greyhound Cruiser and chickens Betty & Wilma.
His work has been displayed at the Shoalhaven Regional Art Gallery, the Manly Art Gallery, the Lady Denman Museum and the Milk Factory Gallery, Bowral NSW. He has won international and local photographic competitions and his work is held in corporate and private collections in Australia, Asia and Europe.

This body of work is called ‘Longing’, referencing a quiet drama present in the photographs. They portray a light beyond darkness, a release into something beyond. Created without a lens, the images are not a ‘focussed’ view of the world, but a more basic response to light, and become abstract colour field images. This 'lack of focus' removes us from the actual subject in front of us. Instead it hints at the mysterious, often unclear vision of our futures, made up of our internal desires and a longing for what we don't have.
