Inspiring Journeys


Inspiring destinations that offer something unique for photographers. I love sharing the beauty in this world, and sharing why I think you might want to see it too.

I want to share a few words of appreciation for a fellow traveller, just one of many lovely people who help to make these journeys a little bit more special.


The Absolute Best Lens in Nepal

The Absolute Best Lens in Nepal

Very rarely a new lens comes along that changes how I think about photography. This is one of those lenses. My priority for glass is always quality over convenience, but this time you get enough of both to make it a hard one to walk past. The newly released "DG Vario-Summilux 10-25mm f/1.7 ASPH" by Panasonic+Leica is not only a great lens for MFT systems, but may well be good enough to tempt full frame owners to look seriously at adopting the smaller mirrorless format of the Lumix G series.

Trip report from our adventures in Arctic Norway. This year was an exceptional adventure and one we will treasure for a lifetime.


Tshering and His Gift

That moment when you are reminded of the true value of travel and how deeply it affects us. As I look to the future of travel in Bhutan and the changes ahead for us we are reminded of how treasured it is to share a gift.

Some of the best game drives in Kenya are not actually about Lions and Leopards, but the very small creatures that bounce about between trees and shrubs. It was the bird life in Kenya that really took my breath away on my two week safari in Kenya.


Anything But Now

Anything But Now

The problem with living the life of a photographer is that you so rarely get a chance to live in the now. Everything is past or present and very little in between.


Snow and Light in Norway

Snow and Light in Norway

Snow hides everything you don’t want to see. It silently arrives in the depth of night and fills in the gaps, wipes away the footsteps from yesterdays photographers and leaves you a clean slate to work with every morning. Snow clones out the messy bits better than any Photoshop session.


Why We Take Photos

Why We Take Photos

On a journey through the wide open spaces of South Australia and the Outback, I am reminded of why we take photos and how lucky we are to be able to share the beauty of the world.


Quiet Moments with a Thunder Dragon

Quiet Moments with a Thunder Dragon

The people of Bhutan refer to their nation as the land of the Thunder Dragon, a title that evokes images of fire breathing monsters and villages fleeing from destruction. The reality is something far more peaceful.

What went on in Hobart and why food photography is more than just another gig.

Sometimes the failures of our fellow travellers can become an inspiration to making our own journeys more fulfilling.
