I recently spent two days at Spicers, Hidden Vale in Grandchester, QLD. This 12,000 acre property is only an hours drive from Brisbane but literally feels like you have been transported to somewhere like the Hunter Valley in NSW. It is set on a ridge with stunning views over a huge valley. The estate is filled […]
Milford Sound New Zealand – why you need to go there!
When I did a tour of the South Island of New Zealand a while back everyone was telling me that I needed to see Milford Sound. As always I never believe what people say and I thought – yeah maybe! We were staying in Queenstown for a few days and we had some spare time […]
3 reasons why you need to visit Cradle Mountain, Tasmania
On a recent road trip around Tasmania we spent 3 nights at Cradle Mountain. It was Autumn and if you know Tasmania at all that could mean that its a beautiful hot sunny day one day and snowing the next. The weather can be very unpredictable but luckily we had mostly beautiful clear days although […]
A Road Tripping Adventure: Valemount, Canada
Where? Yes, Valemount. I had never heard of it either but it was our stop-over for the night after driving all the way from Vancouver to the Rocky Mountains in Canada. We were heading for Jasper and needed a pit stop somewhere so Valemount was it, making it a 7 hour drive. A lot of […]

A Road Trip Adventure: Central Oregon
Following on from A Road Trip Adventure: Portland, Oregon the next part of the journey was from Portland to Bend, Oregon. You may be asking why Bend?

The reason why you should always go..
Sometimes as a photographer we can get frustrated when we drive for miles at ungodly hours to photograph a sunset or sunrise only to get there and the sky does nothing. You come home empty handed and empty hearted. When I’m feeling like this I have to remind myself that not all sunsets/sunrises can be […]
A Road Tripping Adventure – Portland Oregon
Following on from A Road Tripping Adventure LA to San Francisco which you can read about here, here, here and here, the next stop on the itinerary was Portland, Oregon. You may be thinking that’s an odd place to visit? Its not a well known city like LA, New York or San Francisco but Oregon is […]
One Perfect Day in Jasper, Canada

The No.1 accessory you need if you are a nervous flyer..
I hate flying. There I said it! The thought of having to take a flight longer than 3 hours sets my heart a flutter and my palms become clammy. My first big flight was when I moved to London about 6 years ago. The flight there was fine but I did numerous little flights while […]
Boxing Day Bliss at Shellys Beach, Ballina NSW
While staying down in Northern NSW last week I was excited to be staying close to the beach and to finally have some time to do some photography. I get a bit crazy if I go too long between shoots. I have said many a time in the past that photography is my meditation and […]
