After almost three years with no overseas travel, I took the first chance I could to hop over to New Zealand for a few days over the New Year. A wonderful time revisiting some old favourite places like Queenstown and Milford Sound, and some new favourites such as Dunedin, Aoraki/Mt Cook and Wanaka.
I’m lucky enough to have the opportunity to regularly travel to Central Australia, but unfortunately, I rarely get the chance to make any photographs while I’m there. On my latest trip, I made sure I set aside some time to get the camera out. These first two photographs are from atop the Krichauff Range, with […]
I’ve driven the Great Ocean Road in Victoria quite a few times. Each time, I’ve noticed the rainforest of the Otways and thought “I should go in there one day”. I had a couple of weeks free in early June, so “one day” finally arrived. The weather wasn’t ideal, but I managed to visit Hopetoun […]

Turns out they were diamonds, and pretty soon mining claims were established, and the town of Kolmanskop was born. By 1912, the area was producing over 10 per cent of the world’s total diamonds, and […]
After a few days in the dunes, we travelled to Sesfontein for a couple of days visiting and photographing in two Himba villages in the area. Himba are pastoralists with the men primarily taking care of the livestock while the women remain behind and undertake the bulk of the work in their small villages, including […]
You may have guessed, but posts have been a little out of order. The Quiver Tree Forest near Keetmanshoop was our first real stop after a long drive from Windhoek. First, we arrived in the afternoon and spent an hour or two in the forest as the sun set. There were no clouds in the […]
