A portrait is not made in the camera but on either side of it
— Edward Steichen
 

When was the last time you felt it? That overwhelming sense of awe when you realise, this moment is one that I’ll never forget.

Well, that’s my life. It’s one full of passion, adventure and unforgettable moments

My love of adventure has seen me spend the past 10 years travelling the world, eating sensational foods, developing new passions and of course, falling in love… with the snow.

To me, the snowy mountains will always hold a piece of my heart. Not only are they a constant reminder of the beauty and power of mother nature, but the home of one of my greatest passions as well, snowboarding.

It is sport full of excitement, boundary pushing challenges and a sport that has taken to me some of the most beautiful places in the world. Thanks to snowboarding, I’ve not only witnessed some spectacular landscapes, but I’ve also developed some truly amazing friendships over unforgettable hiking trips, backyard jib sessions and late night talks around camp fires.

It’s these extraordinary experiences and relationships that have, more than anything, influenced me as a photographer. Whether it’s inside or outside of my work, I love being able to capture precious stories and experiences so that moments and memories that would otherwise pass by can be cherished and enjoyed for years to come.

Every time I see someone come alive in front of my camera, or their face light up when they realise just how beautiful they are at their reveal, my desire to work with and inspire those on the other side of my camera grows.

That’s me. I’m the kind of person that sees the light in everything and is fascinated by it; from the way it filters through falling snow to look like diamonds in the sky, to the way it illuminates a West Australian sunset with extraordinarily vibrant colours. I see the beauty in everything, and I can see it in you.

 

 
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world
