Aline and Mat. I photographed their wedding last summer in Margaret River and we became friends. Not only that, I also met a bunch of great new people through Mat and Aline, some whom’s wedding I got to photograph as well. Now they are pregnant. When I was staying in Exmouth (to photograph Mat’s best mates wedding) we ventured out to Charlie’s knife, one of Mat’s favourite spots and also one of the most iconic look out spots in Exmouth. I was prepared for a surprise as Mat and Aline are crazy cats but the onesies.. nop. Did not see that coming. Can not thank them enough though it looks awesome!
Mexico. I always wanted to go but was deadset on learning spanish first, then go. Next thing you know years have gone past. I am happy to say I got over my ‘ I have to learn spanish first’ and just went. ‘ spanish for dummies’ pocket books really do work and there are always kids around if you want to practise your pronunciation. My trip.. I flew into Oaxaca city, capital of Oaxaca region, south west Mexico. It was the midst of festive season what me and my Nikon film camera very very very much liked. From Oaxaca city I travelled down to the coast where I spent my time hanging out on surf beaches, braving the Mexican waves on my longboard. I was paddling out one morning and got chatting to ‘grandpa’ as he is known in the local surf community. He showed me how to surf the left hander point break at its best and asked me where I was going from here. I said to him I wanted to go somewhere where I could sleep in a hammock on the beach, surf a great right hander, eat fresh fish and as a final touch- have little to no people around. I was kinda more describing an ideal then really thinking I would find such place anno 2014. But ‘grandpa’ knew the spot I should go…. So off I went. It was not far, but it was tricky to get there. I got on a bus, another bus, a taxi bus, a taxi, a taxi boat, another shared transport vehicle and yes, found paradise and beautiful people along the way. Thank you ‘grandpa’ you made my trip!
I am currently on the road for the months of July and August 2014. However, I will be checking my emails frequently and available to catch up on Skype, so please feel free to contact me online at any time!
rainbow country. when invited to stay with my friend in Byron Bay I had no idea that it was going to be this special. the people I met, the energy I felt, all added to an experience I hold dear to my heart. I was welcomed into the home of the lovely Shaun and Victoria, a magical property in the rainforest near Byron Bay I lost myself wondering around for hours…
