Artists's statement:

"My Australian travel photography and writing is a culmination of various factors – some planned, some not so planned. At times, the critical photographic moment presents itself unexpectedly in front of my eyes. Years of professional photography and journalism studies, and actively undertaking and completing projects in the field, has delivered me to a point where I have a perception of knowing where to be and at what time.

I travel in Australia and work diligently to record things of interest. I cherish experiencing Australia and make my own luck by doing things to the best of my ability. My occupation is to skilfully interpret and present to an audience what’s happening in Australia with a combination of travel photography and writing. The journey and work continues with vigour."
