Name // Jack Brookes

Your hometown // I’m originally from a country town called Mount Gambier in South Australia, although I’ve lived in Adelaide for the last three years.

Day Job // I work in marketing at Red Bull Australia as a Student Brand Manager while I am at Uni studying a Bachelor of Journalism.

Camera and Lenses // A Canon 7d with a Canon 24-70mm f2.8 L, Canon 10-22mm and Canon 70-300mm

What inspires you // People. Seeing people who are off doing or creating cool things. That and being outside, particularly adventuring to places I haven’t been, no matter how close or simple they are.

Dream location to shoot in Australia // There is so many but I think a Tasmanian road trip is going to have to happen sooner than later.

Advice for aspiring photographers // Although I don’t see myself as one worthy of offering advice, I think just go outside and start shooting. Go adventuring, have fun, document the experience and the rest will come.

This morning we left our campsite and made the walk on top of the cliffs to see the morning change as the sun rose over the mountains." #weareexplorers

The night before we camped on the beach overlooking the mountains that roll down to meet the sea, thinking let’s get up there. So, the next morning we rolled out of our swags, jumped a few fences, hiked up the mountain and headed to the edge of the cliff and looked over the sea to watch the sunrise. Although only an hour and a half away from Adelaide, it was another place neither of us had stepped foot before." #weareexplorers

This shot is from a mid-week winter getaway where we ventured down the coast, spent the night in the cave and were up to see the sunrise in the morning." #weareexplorers
