I'm swimming at one of my favourite beaches in the world, an active stormfront is marching in from the sou-west. I swim back to the beach, my camera is sitting in its housing in one of the caves carved into the limestone cliffs. I want to be at sea level when the f...

March 8, 2018, International Women's Day. We felt it was the right day and night to launch a new body of ocean. A series shot in the waters of South Australia over the past three years, The Sea and She. It was also the right time to put my time in the water towards som...

I put my first pedal down in anger on August 4, 2016, almost five months later I crossed the finish line in a small town in Victoria on the Glenelg River. From Eucla to Nelson, over 4500 kilometres in the saddle and a world apart in landscape and even further apart in...

Interesting things start happening when the whiff of a swell is in the air. Texts are flying, phones are ringing, shifts are swapped, vans are packed. We watch a swell before it develops, charting its progress from thousands of kilometres away, matching winds and swell...

This is Tony. I met Tony and Chrissy at Haslam, halfway between Smoky Bay and Streaky Bay. Tony saw my setup and it sparked up a conversation. Tony is from a generation and place where police are wallopers and women are sheilas. He and Chrissy are prospectors, travelin...

As the crow flies, this week hasn't seen me move too far, but as far as far as feet climbed it will go down as a record for me, 1300 feet in just a matter of seconds, strapped onto the side of a helicopter, sweaty palms gripping my camera in the frigid air. You left me...
