Exploring Australia: 5 Great Photography Locations in Tasmania

(Eddystone Point, Tasmania) My passion for travel is motivated by a desire to live life instead of existing through it. My passion for photography is motivated by a desire to share these experiences with others – the landscapes that have mesmerized me, the wildlife that has intoxicated me, the people who have inspired me and […]

10 More Signs That I’m Back in Australia

I recently reflected on 10 signs that remind me I’m back in Australia: my home country, the country I’ve lived away from for the past 12 years and the country I’ve grown to appreciate the more I travel around the world. But it’s not just the literal signs I’ve noticed – the wildlife road signs, […]

10 Things To Photograph in Tasmania, Australia

(View of Cradle Mountain, taken from Hansons Peak) It took me 38 years, 51 countries and 7 continents before I set foot on Australia’s southern-most state, Tasmania.  This may not sound like a big deal – except that I am Australian! I have travelled all over the world in search of adventure, to enjoy breath-taking […]

Through The Lens: Yorke Peninsula, South Australia

South Australia is often overlooked by visitors to the country, overshadowed by the more famous attractions of its neighbouring states.  It’s often overlooked by Australians themselves and as a resident of Adelaide for a decade, I was guilty of exactly that. But like many travellers, exploring the world has helped me appreciate my own country. […]

10 Signs That I’m Back in Australia

  Although I am now a proud dual citizen of Australia and the UK, I’ll always be Australian at heart.  But by calling London home for the past decade and feeding my wanderlust by exploring other parts of the world,  I’ve neglected my own backyard. Being back in Adelaide for a few months has given […]

Photo of the Week: Emu Crossing – South Australia

An emu teaches her child how to cross the road in Innes National Park (Yorke Peninsula, South Australia). When they reached the other side, the adult emu turned around and pecked the little one with such aggression that I couldn’t help but feel the little one had failed the lesson!     Do you want […]

Through The Lens: Kangaroo Island Landscapes (& Tips)

Exploring and photographing the diverse Kangaroo Island landscapes (Fisherman’s Jetty, Kingscote) Kangaroo Island is a location I had inexcusably neglected during the decade I lived in Adelaide.  But a recent and temporary return, with a newfound photography passion, has motivated me to explore the the nearby attractions of the place I once called home, through new […]

Photo of the Week: Tasmanian Countryside, Australia

A good lesson I’ve learned when it comes to landscape photography is that sometimes simplicity is everything. This image was taken on the way back from a sunrise shoot at Picnic Rocks, Eddystone point, only a short distance from the farm I was staying at in Tasmania. For me, this is the Australian outback at […]

Through the Lens: Kangaroo Island Wildlife

Kangaroo Island Wildlife Spotting – Opportunities & Locations Kangaroo Island is a location I had inexcusably neglected during the decade I lived in Adelaide.  But a recent and temporary return, with a newfound photography passion, has motivated me to explore the place I once called home…through new eyes.  I recently returned from five days in […]

Travel Inspiration: Kangaroo Island, Australia

(sunrise at Kingscote, Kangaroo Island) Let’s start this post with a little experiment. Close you eyes and think of Australia. What immediately comes to mind? Do you hear the sound of waves crashing into lichen-covered rocks? Do you feel the soft sand beneath your feet as you walk along the white sandy shore? Is the […]

Photo of the Week: A Barn Owl’s Lunch (Kangaroo Island)

  I’ve just returned from a great five days in Kangaroo Island, enjoying the spectacular scenery and amazing wildlife – my camera loved it! One of my favourite shots was taken at Raptor Domain on the South Coast.  What do you think this barn owl just had for lunch?!   Do you want to receive […]

Through The Lens: Autumn in the Adelaide Hills (Australia)

“The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land: it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.” (G.K. Chesterton) Nearly two months ago I rented out my flat in London, put my belongings into storage and headed to Heathrow with a one-way ticket.  As […]

Through The Lens: Fleurieu Peninsula (South Australia)

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.” (Marcel Proust) As I write this, I am sitting in my parent’s backyard, strategically positioning myself to enjoy the warmth of the sunshine whilst avoiding glare on my laptop’s screen.  I am multi-tasking between editing photographs from a recent trip […]

Photo of the Week: Adelaide Sunset

I’ve mentioned before that I think Australia has some of the best sunsets in the world, and one of the things I’ve enjoyed most about returning to Adelaide for a little R&R before I take off travelling again, is being close enough to the beach to enjoy them. Sunsets can be a little hit-and-miss and […]

Photo of the Week: Sunset at the Beach – Freycinet, Tasmania (Australia)

The day began with an early rise to capture the magical colours that introduced the start of another gloriously sunny March day at Sleepy Bay.  It continued with a strenuous but enjoyable hike up Mount Amos, navigating our way through the steep rock formations that rewarded us with stunning views of the surrounding bays.  And […]

Photo of the Week: Henley Beach – Through New Eyes

I recently wrote about starting my year of ’embracing the moment’ in Adelaide, for a extended holiday in the home I haven’t lived in for more than 12 years.  I wrote that approaching this trip reminded me of the quote:  “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new […]
