Italy speaks for itself. Loudly and proudly.
Arriving in Cinque Terre one summer in my early twenties, it instantly took hold of me.
It had it all. Culture, local food and wine, the ocean and magical architecture that seemed to mould directly into the hillside.
The same could be said for the rest of the country too.
I’ve spent a lot of time here over the years and it always feels like home when ever I return.
Italy's the country I've traveled to the most and that immense connection could have a few explanations. Perhaps due in part to my great-grandparents being Italian, the fact that I proposed and married my beautiful wife here or the ever-amazing food and wine on offer.
Perhaps all of those things.
From the pristine beaches of the Amalfi coast, the rolling fields of Tuscany, the breathtaking mountains in the north all the way to the place that took me away to another world; Riomaggiore in Cinque Terre; and everything in between.
The island of colour, endless smiles, friendly faces and rich culture.
With such a beautifully diverse landscape, there's so much to explore. From beaches to rice terraces, waterfalls to volcanos, urban to rural.
An often misunderstood destination that certainly captured my heart.
My experience was one of beauty and peace. Nothing short of mind blowing.
If this experience is not on your bucket list… grab a pen and put it right at the top!
Swimming around in the pristine waters of Tonga was amazing enough but to swim with, and capture such magnificent creatures was something else entirely. A surreal trip for sure.
Having both mother and calf swimming up to, and around you with the same curiosity that you have for them was unreal. I was even lucky enough to enjoy a friendly slap from a particularly playful calf!
My first time with these amazing creatures in such peaceful waters and certainly not the last.
Where Africa meets Europe and what seems a world away from anywhere.
Hustling and bustling. Extreme temperatures. Majesty. Enthralment.
Morocco is not the kind of destination that you approach lightly and yet its exoticness can easily sweep you away.
Ancient cities and vast open desert space, a rich tapestry of centuries-old traditions and culture meeting modern-day evolution.
Getting lost through my lens here was a delight and something I look forward to doing again.
The place that I've called home on and off for the past fifteen years. And the place that's allowed me to fine tune my photography skills and capture a wide range of images.
From cityscapes to seascapes, fine art to events and almost everything in between, Sydney is filled with an abundance of life just waiting to be captured.
My love of the ocean started in this stunning city. As a child, I remember visiting family in Sydney and instantly falling in love with the sea.
My fondest childhood memories all centre around it and this particular portfolio, among others, represents that love of the ocean, as captured through my lens.
They say it's 'the city that never sleeps.'
I say it's the city that you want it to be.
An economic centre, skyscrapers, bridges, infamous architecture and one heck of a big park smack bang amongst it all.
There's what we all know of it and tend to associate with this incredible city, though there's also community-focused villages within this thriving metropolis.
Small town approaches against a city backdrop. Incredibly diverse and widely present multiculturalism. Pockets of delightful difference scattered all over and worthy of taking the time to explore.
A city that feels like its own country - in the best possible way.
The land of ancient ruins and history, famous sunsets and crisp, blue water.
Seemingly endless islands, volcanic and barren terrain, structures and culture as old as time itself - an enchanting destination to explore.
Throw in some of the oldest living and happiest souls on our planet, incredible food and a rich culture that's purely infectious.
No matter how many trips I've made here, there's always more to discover.
In a word - wow.
A destination that truly blew me away and where I not only fell in love with the cuisine though left me craving more, of all of it, long after departing.
More of everything.
Starkness and harsh climates alongside traditional colours and bountiful smiles. Cities, towns and villages. Oceans, rivers and mountains.
From the far-north remote village of Sapa, all the way down to the Mekong River in the south - the Vietnamese landscape, enticing culture, fresh food and interesting faces are a delight to capture and experience.
To capture someone's truth is a gift.
Their essence and presence in one moment.
When shooting portraits, I look not for the unusual though rather for the not so obvious. Whether that be in subject, environment or particular moment in time.
Something unexpected. Something perhaps imperceptible to others. Something authentic and majestic all of its own.
In many ways for me, where technology meets nature.
And in other ways, underwater photography is where I simply feel most at home.
Infinite possibilities, shadows and shapes to capture.
Experiencing what you shoot, often as you shoot it. Swaying, swerving, floating and existing within the magnificent beast that you're looking to capture.
Often a challenge, sometimes a danger and always a pleasure.
