Lofoten in January: The Land of Two-Hour Sunrises

When I visited Reine and Svolvær in Norway’s Lofoten Islands back in 2013, I knew that the three days I had allotted weren’t anywhere near enough to do the place justice. I wasn’t sure when I’d ever get back — given the remoteness of Norway in relation to my home base of Australia — but…

2014: Coachella to Queenstown and Everything in Between

Like most people, I am still struggling to comprehend that it is 2015. Where did 2014 go? As I sit here on a plane bound for my second adventure of the year–my first being the last few days of an amazing two-week road trip around NZ’s South Island with my family–I know that travel is…

Why I’m Returning to Northern Norway (And Why I Can’t Wait!)

Everyone has their own reasons for travel. I travel to explore the unknown, to meet new people, to learn more about the world outside the happy cocoon of home. However, I have to admit that many of those places are also chosen for their scenic qualities; after all, what landscape photographer isn’t in search of…

How To Photograph the Northern Lights

Seeing the green of the aurora dancing in the sky above the snowy wilderness is an extraordinary experience that you will never forget. However, if you’re like most travellers, you won’t be happy with just seeing it — you’ll want at least one or two photos so you can show people at home and make them…

The Best Photo Spots (from Dusk til Dawn) on Hamilton Island

The names of Hamilton Island and the Whitsundays are synonymous with tropical relaxation. Every year, hundreds of thousands of holidaymakers make their way to this chain of islands — possibly the most gorgeous along the entire Queensland coast — so they can kick back with a cocktail under the palms and listen to the tinkling…

Seaside Artistry at the Swell Sculpture Festival

Currumbin Beach is one of my favourite spots on the Gold Coast. It’s a bit further away from the craziness that is Surfer’s Paradise and it’s got an awesome, laid-back vibe to it. Plus, Elephant Rock at the beach’s northern end provides endless photographic opportunities no matter what time of day, so it’s a spot…

Having Plenty of Fun at the Color Run

Since the first Australian Color Run was held in Melbourne in late 2012, I’ve been intrigued by the idea of doing one. I know that it’s had its controversies — in particular, many people have accused it of cheapening the Hindu festival of Holi, where people take to the streets of India throwing coloured powder…

Photo Essay: The Icefields Parkway in Black & White

Soaring mountaintops with hidden valleys filled with the unimaginably large icefields. Wide valleys filled with glacier-ground rocks and turquoise rivers rushing towards the next waterfall. Pine trees as far as the eye can see. All of these things are synonymous with Alberta’s Highway 93, which I’ll go out on a limb and say is one…

The SS Dicky: See It Before It’s Gone

On the 4th of February 1893, the SS Dicky was in the wrong place at the wrong time. In a strong storm and heavy seas, the crew knew that the trader ship from Rockhampton was lost and beached it at what is now Caloundra’s Dicky Beach, mainly to avoid crashing into the rocks at Moffat…

15 Reasons To Go To Big Sur Right Now

Big Sur is a place of legend; a place where the mountains pushed headlong out of the sea to create an epic coastline of cliffs and canyons. The ruggedness of the area and the fact that the mountains have given very little leeway to anyone mean that very few people live in the area, making…
