  • The March of the Turtle Hatchlings at Mon Repos

    March 6, 2015

    As dusk fell on the beach of Mon Repos, near Bundaberg on Queensland’s Coral Coast, hundreds of people stood milling about under the trees nearby. The mosquitos had come out in force but there was no escaping them; we had to wait until our number was called, and only then would anybody be allowed on…

  • Stargazing in One of the Darkest Skies in the World

    February 24, 2015

    One of the main reasons I am a photographer today is the night sky. I remember spending countless nights sitting outside the backcountry huts of New Zealand just taking in the stars, which were often framed by 360º of rugged mountain silhouettes.

  • How to Sleep Like a Baby in the Icehotel

    December 4, 2014

    Lapland seems to be chock full of snow hotels, and there is none better known than Sweden’s Icehotel. This hotel, built out of some 30,000m2 of snice (a special blend of snow, ice, and water that helps to insulate the hotel) and 1,000 tons of ice, is the 25th iteration of an idea that Yngve…
