About 20 years ago I travelled from where I lived in Brisbane, Queensland on the east coast of Australia to the far south western corner of Western Australia for the very first time. I'd grown up in Australia and had seen most of the eastern half of it by then, but had never ventured any further we
As a child I was fascinated by history and the strange natural phenomena in this world. Jordan was a country that made my list very early on as it had Petra and the Dead Sea. In early 2014 I joined a group of photographers for a trip around Jordan, we travelled through much of the country taking pho
Wadi Rum, which translates to either "Valley of Sand" or the "Roman Valley", is an area in the South East of Jordan that is fairly desolate and full of some pretty incredible rock formations. Wadi Rum has a long and storied history, it has been inhabited by many cultures including the Nabataeans.
As I slip into the water from the glass bottom boat, I wonder how this pristine reef isn't better known. Ningaloo Reef in the Indian Ocean stretches over 300 kilometres down along the western coast of Australia. It is a World Heritage listed reef and is one of the longest fringing coral reefs in the
"The solider with the gun pointed in our direction says it is time for us to leave" I casually say to one of my photographer friends who, up until that point, had been ignoring my directions to get back in the van and focused on getting her photos.

I try my best to treat their practices with respect and dignit
Tasmania is the large island off the south of mainland Australia, it is an incredibly diverse place when it comes to geography with tall mountains that can get snow at any time of year, through to amazing beaches and wild stretches of coast. Much of the island is largely untouched as over half of i
In 2008 I took a trip that changed my view of the world, it amplified a desire to help others and created a drive and purpose in my life. I visited Papua New Guinea and volunteered while I was there, this set me down a path to volunteer and fund raise for causes that grabbed my attention. I had alre
A few years ago I headed to Iceland with some photographer friends, we headed there over the summer solstice, during which the sun never really sets. Depending where you are on the island you can get up to 22 hours of daylight, with the other two hours being more like twilight than a
While not as famous as its northern hemisphere cousin, Australia, New Zealand, Chile and Argentina actually get the "Southern Lights", the Aurora Australis. If you are wanting to see them regularly you need to visit Tasmania or the far south of New Zealand, as they are further south, but where I li
A few years ago I was commissioned to travel to Antarctica with an expedition company, the brief was "travel to Antarctica, have an adventure, go snorkelling, kayaking, hiking, swimming and camping... take photos while you are there too". Definitely my favourite type of project!
