Inspirations // Firstly what inspired me to be adventurous was when I climbed my first mountain at Mt. Niseko Annupuri, Japan in 2008. Inspiration is everywhere, from adventure seekers like Jordan Romero, world record holder for the youngest kid ever to climb all 8 Summits on each continent, photographers like Jimmy Chin and local photographer Jim Picot. Writers such as David Attenborough, communities that show cases hidden treasures such as We are Explorers & Wild Swimming Australia are all very awe-inspiring. But most of all the stories I tell people of where I’ve been inspires me because it makes me keep on going and visiting places that I’ve never been too and tell them more stories. All it takes is just one single step outside of your backyard.
Dream adventure location to shoot in Australia // Hire a RV Van and travel around Tasmania.
Nugget of wisdom for aspiring photographers // Try everything. Shoot everything from, Landscape, street, fashion etc. You just won’t know it unless you give it a shot.
