Moments from a gem just outside Melbourne. I definitely have a lot on my doorstep to explore over the next few months before I uproot again. Stoked! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
On another note, I often get asked what gear I use, so I went and uploaded a new vid on to my YouTube channel ,showing exactly what gear is in my camera bag for most missions. Link in bio ✌🏻

Been digging through the Oman archives so I figured I would share a few more snaps from this crazy place! When we eventually settle on Mars, this is what it might look like! 🏜

During my time in Sri Lanka, I took the Blue train a fair few times to try get the right conditions, and on the very last trip we eventually lucked out!

Exploring parts of Oman that I had never seen on any site, app, or postcard was truly refreshing and I am looking forward to the next adventure thats way off the beaten track. On another note...Happy happy Birthday to my younger brother @lao_vt! I hope you have a wicked day man! Much love 🤘🏻

Some Tranquil Topdown Tuesday classics from one of my favourite spots on earth! Mellow mornings in the rice fields are pretty hard to beat. 🍃 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀

#Hellofrom the Philippines. I caught some serenity off the coast of Coron as young local boy mad his way out to catch some fish. Not a moment I will soon forget.

During my time in Sri Lanka, I often found myself pulling over in small villages and capturing, the morning scenes whilst the streets started to come to life. This is something I really enjoy doing as I am able to slow down and hyper focus on my surroundings. One might call it “flowstate”

I am currently working on my Sri Lanka edit which has been pretty overwhelming to start, as I have had to work through 2 months worth of footage. It’s finally starting to take shape, and will hopefully be done soon. 🤘🏻

Happy Halloween everyone! I figured this crazy looking tree perched on the side of an active volcano...framed up by sulphur clouds was quite fitting for today’s post! Hope everyone has a good one. 🎃

#Hellofrom East Java! Shooting vanilla milkshake long exposures is not something I do to often, but when I sent the Mavic up at this waterfall with zero to no light, it seemed like a good option. This was the outcome.🍃 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀

Unreal views from the fishing village of Ko Panyi. Nomadic fishermen built the first buildings on the edge of the island during the 18th century. Just imagine how remote this place was way back then...Have an awesome weekend everyone! 🤙🏻 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀

I recently spent two days cruising on the Great Ocean Road with my mate @grady_sheppard and his absolute beaut of a vehicle. I am not much of a car guy, but when it’s comes down to a VW classic like this, I am a fanatic! What’s your favourite car? 🚌

During my last trip to the Dolomighty mountains, I drove a few hours to the base of Tre Cime....just to find that it had been shut off due to a serious storm that slammed through the Alps earlier that week. With the sun dipping fast and a flight out of Venice at 6am the following morning, I opted out of the solo night hike up and got the drone up instead. This was the outcome.

As a travel photographer that is always trying to improve my experience out in the field, having a solid camera bag is essential! I have tried out a fair few bags over the years and have come to really love the bags produced by @shimodadesign. I spent the past 7 months traveling through Asia using their “Explore 40L” and it definitely stood the test. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀
When the opportunity came up to test their brand new “Action X Series”, I hopped on board straight away. I just spent the past few weeks putting this bag through its paces and I am blown away by its versatility, build quality, weight distribution, and new features! I am beyond stoked to take this beast on future trips. Click the link in bio to learn more. 🤘🏻#shimodadesigns

I just came back from a few days off grid on the Great Ocean Road. Got to spend time back in the surf, smashing pizza, hanging with kangaroos, campfire banter, and got to snap a few shots along the way. Feeling stoked and very keen to show you what I got up to. Until then, here is a Nomad in Sahara solitude. ✌🏻

The Trex classic. A fast food comp taken by many, but still one of the most epic landscapes I have seen to date. 🦖 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Where dunes meet desert planes and Nomads roam freely. The desert had to be one of my all time favourite places to shoot. What’s your dream location to shoot? 🏜

The hike up to Ijen was like nothing I have done before! Sweat covered gas masks with years of sulphur baked into the filters and an unhealthy lack of sleep. It was by far one of the shortest and hardest, yet most rewarding hikes to date! Due to how active the volcano was, @withluke and I were unable to capture the so called “bucket” shots we wanted, but we did have an amazing walk back down with some creamy conditions and locals that were down to share their smiles with us. This made it all worth it. 🌋

While a hot Ozzy summer is inbound on my side, I will just live vicariously through the cooler times I had in the Dolomites last year. Hope everyone has a wicked weekend!✌🏻
