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.

My three Lowepro Dryzone Rovers

I dare say that I probably give my backpacks a harder life than just about anybody (if you are in doubt read this ). / Over the past eight years I have been on a quest to document every waterfall within 100km of Melbourne. I have now finished this book and am just waiting on some decent rain to get the last few shots I need. This quest has been extremely arduous but very enjoyable and in the proc…
