Best known for his exploits on the cricket pitch – including captaining the Australian team from 1999 to 2004 – Steve Waugh today is a businessman, philanthropist and photographer. 

He has retained close links with India, a country he first visited in 1986 to play international cricket, and is the driving force behind the Steve Waugh Foundation which is dedicated to financially helping children suffering from illnesses or afflictions and who, for one reason or another, can’t be helped by the mainstream charities. Steve was appointed the Australian Of The Year in 2004 and was named the Australian Father of the Year in 2005. His family is an extremely important part of his life, and documenting family events and holidays is one of the key aspects of his photography. Another is simply the everyday people he has encountered during his international cricket career, particularly those in third-world countries.
