I would like to acknowledge and pay my respects to the people, the Traditional Custodians of the land on which I live, work and make art. I would like to pay my respects to the Wurundjeri Peoples of the Eastern Kulin Nation and their Elders, past, present and emerging, and acknowledge all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, also paying my respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
Growing up photographing the landscape meant lots of day trips and exploring Victoria. It slowly evolved into overseas adventures and poorly planned overnighters in the car with a bunch of snacks. I learned that preparation and perseverance is key. Mostly, it’s about showing up and just being present. Today I travel around Australia in my converted campervan with my greyhound companion, Ruby. My next overseas adventure is to be Iceland September 2022 - stay tuned!
Creating powerful imagery
One of my biggest aims with my photography is to challenge preconceived ideas of what is a beautiful landscape. Every part of this world is beautiful. Every drop of rain. Every cloud. The dark days and cold mornings. I want to remind everyone that while we are stuck in society with our blinkers on - out there the world still continues.
Whether it's planning an adventure or getting caught up in the moment. For me, it's always about connecting with nature on a physical and emotional level.
Make the Journey
Finding the beauty in the nature with all the glorious imperfections and constant turmoil that work so harmoniously together.
Capture that feeling that hangs so heavy around me in the atmosphere. Nature has the best way of expressing what words fall short of.
