I am a semi retired professional natural history photographer, educator and mentor based in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. I’m interested in promoting our understanding of the natural world and the environment in an ethical manner. I may not be “famous” or as well known as some working in the industry these days but my work and ethics have stood the test of time amongst my peers.
Having traveled the back roads of Australia extensively over nearly fifty years and have had many adventures along the way. People once joked that I had spent more time under the stars than I had in a real bed under a roof of a house, to some extent that would be true.
I have worked as a blasting supervisor for seismic survey companies in central Australia, a naturalist, ethnoecologist, adventure tour guide and natural history cinematographer, just to name a few jobs.
I have travelled via an old Landrover, new Landrovers, Nissan Patrols, Toyota Landcruisers, boats, aeroplanes, helicopters and motorbikes just to name a few. I now travel in a Ford Ranger.
I often lament about how simply we travelled and the basic camps we enjoyed not that long ago. These days we have all the technology to make touring far more comfortable and some would argue more complicated due to the electronics in modern vehicles.
