The photoSentinel Team

photoSentinel was developed by the team at Cornerstone Solutions  based in Melbourne, Australia. Founded in 2004, Cornerstone Solutions are proud to now be a world leader in long-term timelapse photography.

We are passionate about providing innovative hardware and software solutions. We partner with local photographers and professional content creators across more than 55 countries, in over than 2000 locations worldwide. Our clients use our products and services to capture high-resolution time-lapse of anything from site monitoring on construction projects, to tracking seasonal environmental growth.

The photoSentinel Headquarters are filled with our dynamic team of developers, engineers, designers – and our beloved coffee machine. If it’s quiet, you’ll hear cameras clicking away as we test photoSentinels getting ready to be dispatched.

Our team is continually expanding, and we've now opened international offices in Dubai and in the USA.

Matthew Perrier
Matthew Perrier leads our team with a strong background in the Industrial & Civil sectors. His leadership style, centred around building high-performing teams, draws from his experiences in both SME family businesses and major Australian corporate entities. Beyond his professional prowess Matt is a staunch advocate for safety, innovation, and fostering positive workplaces. He also enjoys travel and experiencing new cultures.
Russell Smith
Software Manager
Overseeing our software development team, Russell has a wealth of experience in team change management, quality control and Agile implementation. Russell drives continuous improvement in our user experience, while at at the same time ensuring our behind-the-scenes software keeps running smoothly. He’s also one of the top Moodle developers in the world.
David Accadia
Chief Technical Officer
As the head of all things development, David is the only one who can claim to know how the photoSentinel system works from end to end - from the components on the circuit board to the photos you see in the gallery. When he's not supporting and improving our existing product line, he's busy inventing something new to bring to market or sleeping to recover from rapid development all-nighters.
Ross Harrington
Market Development Executive
Ross joined the photoSentinel Team in the middle of 2018, coming onboard to help grow our presence in the USA. With a background in Entrepreneurship, Ross is passionate about partnering with content creators to help them discover new business opportunities through Long-term Time-lapse. In his spare time, Ross enjoys spending time either cycling on his Scott road bike, or passionately following his NBA team, the Indiana Pacers.
David Brown
Regional Manager, EUMEA
David oversees photoSentinel expanding operations across Europe, Middle East and Africa. He has over 10 years of experience managing teams in the construction industry, and has lived in the Middle East for 5 years. David loves coffee and surfing, although waves are pretty rare in Dubai.
Aaron Landreth
Sales Manager
Aaron juggles enquiries from all over the world and can be found on the phone at any time of the day or night talking to customers in every timezone. If you have a question he doesn’t know the answer to, you can be sure he'll know who to ask. Aaron also flexes his creative design skills outside of photoSentinel as the inventor of the successful Skopecam.
James Lamont
Technical Support Manager
James provides photoSentinel technical support and keeps the overall stress levels of the office down by ensuring all our IT systems and networks are running smoothly. James looks forward to tackling the Tough Mudder Melbourne course with his colleagues later this year.
J.D. Bonner
IT Business Analyst
Perpetually in pursuit of a seamless customer experience, JD is tasked with analysing and planning the development of all our new features. When freed from the confines of his (albeit quite comfortable) desk, JD enjoys hiking and once hiked for 36 hours to complete the 100km Oxfam Australia Trailwalker.
James Lo
Software Development Lead
Bringing with him a decade of full-stack development experience, James is responsible for the underlying architecture of our software projects, as well as mentoring and overseeing other developers. Outside of work, James enjoys spending time with his toddler, and catching up with friends and family from all over the world.
Jonathan Bertuch
Production Technician
Jonathan is closely involved with the manufacturing process, being responsible for the assembly and testing of photoSentinel units. He applies his mechanical engineering skills and inquisitive problem solving mind to the design-for-manufacture of future products, and is the only one who can tame the beast that is our production 3D printer.
