Born in Melbourne, Australia, I am a full-time professional Nature and Wildlife photographer. A passionate photographer, teacher, and adventurer I run workshops and expeditions for other photographers and travelers to some of the world's wildest and remotest regions.
Specializing in the Polar and sub-Polar regions of the globe, my work celebrates the extreme latitudes of the Polar environment. As an ambassador for the Polar Regions, I gave up the corporate world to pursue my true passion for photography. You are welcome to join me on a photographic trip of a lifetime to some of the most magical destinations on this planet.
