Bio: My passion has always been photographing the breathtaking Australian landscape. For the past 20 years, I have been privileged to call the Australian wilderness my office. For me, there’s nothing more exhilarating than being surrounded by this serenity. Whether it be standing on top of a mountain, or wandering along an ancient dry creek bed, my heart and soul always feels at home amongst these landscapes.
