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.

Thanks for stopping by.

    Wow this is so cool – fabulous in b&w and now colour – love it. You can almost hear the squeals as it swings around in the sunshine.

  • Thanks so much!
    I really like how you see it – almost hearing the squeals…..I never saw that aspect of it until now :)

    This is wonderful! The composition and colours are gorgeous, and the center piece of the ride looks like it is translucent somehow. Beautiful light! :-)

  • Many thanks maremarie – it was such a warm, sunny day :)
