An old Ford Jailbar rusting away in a paddock – Kookynie, Northern Goldfields, Western Australia.

Winter 2009

Appeared in the featured art & photography section of redbubble on December 4, 2009.

Born in Victoria, now living in the outback of Western Australia, I love nature, music, and photography. I’m passionate about our environment, sustainability, and documenting the impact we’ve had on the planet.

I shoot both digital and film, and have a quirky collection of toy and vintage cameras that are a lot of fun to experiment with.
