Best Climbing Experience
Summiting Mont Blanc solo and arriving alone on the summit at 5am watching the sun rise, with a high bivi the previous night - also with an incredible sun set and distant rumbles of thunder.

A month i had at Paynes Ford and a month a Arapiles were both out of this world. Both unique venues in their own way and completely unforgettable.

About My Photography
I love to capture the atmosphere whilst out in the hills and create photos where i look back at them and can remember exactly how that day felt. Landscapes are my favorite however i like capturing simple arty shots and playing with the light.
