Thankful. 
I give thanks everyday that I get to pursue my passion for a living. I want to give a huge thanks to anyone owns a book or a print of mine, each one of you are a piece of my story! 
I captured this during the last swell and you’re seeing it for the first time now.

Surrendering to something far more powerful than myself - while focusing, composing, dialling in correct shutter speed, aperture, iso, having no water droplets and staying relatively safe.

“The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he's always doing both.” James A. Michener

Come to the International Convention Centre in Darling Harbour on the 22nd & 23rd of June for the Aperture Australia Photography Conference. Some of the biggest names in photography will be speaking about their work and life experiences, the stories behind their award winning photos and the key things they’ve learned along their journeys.

I popped in for a coffee at @audleydancehallandcafe yesterday. 
It’s such a beautiful venue, uniquely positioned in the Royal National Park with great food, staff and coffee. ‘Fusion’ and ‘Scalene’ look amazing in their new home too. Each piece is 1.8m x 1.2m, framed with sustainable timber and printed on museum grade canvas. 
As I’ve said before, my images are more than an Instagram square, they come to life when printed big so all of the details can be absorbed. 
Much love.

Hello my fellow human beings of planet earth. 
Although I have many reasons to smile, one of the main one’s is due to what’s in my hands in this photo.

Fun fact - this image was shot on an iPhone with my @axisgo waterhousing too!
