Unravelling the mystery of something.

My projects are all about looking behind something and telling its story. Mostly, it is the secret of nature’s mysterious ways and beautiful creations.

Come on a journey with me, as I explain how my Projects are created and realised. Depending on the adventure, it can be a whole suite of experiences, for example in Outback Australia or the Snowy Bavarian Alps, whereby you come with me on journeys through towns, meet locals, find a few surprising twists and turns along the way. Alternatively, projects can also be a 24-hour-obsession; whereby I crack onto something remarkable and delve into the mysteries of it with my process and maybe manage to capture a few remarkable moments for my portfolio.

I get a lot of feedback from my photography where people want to know the backstory of a capture; to step into the world with me to literally sit-alongside and smell, feel, and move with the experience. This is why I explain the Projects in more detail. Maybe you love looking at pictures, have made your own great adventures of travel or geek out with photography yourself – whatever your reason, to look under the hood of a project and come along the successes and total #fails with me is fun.

Remember, you can come along with me real-time via social media (Instagram, Facebook and Twitter and YouTube)

Otherwise, see you off the beaten track between the dusty deserts of the Aussie outback, the winding windmill roads of Andalusia or the crisp hairpins of the snowy European mountains.
