I have a deep love and reverence for nature and like to express this reverence through my photography. I have won numerous awards in the ANZANG Nature and Landscape Photographer of the Year award. Have held seven solo exhibitions have contributed numerous articles to ‘WILD’ magazine and released a book on Wilsons Promontory called ‘The Prom’. My current project is a book called ‘Melbourne’s Waterfalls’ which aims to document every waterfall within 100km of Melbourne. Over the last seven years I have visited 222 waterfalls plus another 93 water features of interest (smaller cascades, spillways etc), 112 of which have never been documented before. I often travel alone and off track which for me is a more pure and deep way of engaging with the natural world, an engagement that is often missing in our busy, technology driven lives but one that I believe is crucial for mental, physical and spiritual well-being.

'The Prom' sold out

On the 19/11/2010 I created the following post to celebrate the launch of my book on Wilsons Promontory. / The Prom is here / Yesterday I did a book run down along the prom coast and sold 139 books with the result that I have sold out of my first print run of 2011 books. So quite excited to reach this mile stone, the pressure is now on to finish my waterfall trilogy so I can reorder my prom book …

A Day in the Life of a waterfall addict #8

I’ve been waterfall hunting around Melbourne in a methodical way for seven years now having gone on hundreds of trips and in the process systematically descending every waterway whose relief and geology I considered to be conducive to having a waterfall on it. Previously I have visited L Creek 6 times so I thought I knew it pretty well but last week end I decided to approach it from above r…

Carisbrook Falls - A Day in the life of a Waterfall Addict #7

Just came back from a week down at Skenes Creek in the Otways with the family and as I have done many times before we dropped into Carisbrook Falls which has a short 260m track to a lookout just off the Great Ocean Road. After visiting with the fam I thought I’d go back alone to GPS and measure them. From previous visits I knew they were bigger than the tier that is visible from the lookout…

Photography is not a crime

I found this article by Sydney Morning Herald Photographer Jon Reid very interesting although it is kind of old now. / Trav.
