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 new Canon 5Ds R

In case anyone cares as of today I’m the proud new owner of a Canon EOS 5Ds R making me one of the first owners in Australia I imagine. Very excited to have such a professional tool in my hands and can’t wait to try it out. / I know for many 50 megapixels is overkill but as far as I’m concerned there in no such thing as too much resolution when capturing the fine details of tree…
